Publisher's Summary

In March 1876, the life of eight-year-old Josephine Mary Jones changed forever.

Torn from the protection and love of her family and her beloved wolfhound, Clyde, Josie finds herself cold and alone at the Foundling Hospital, where her spirit and outspokenness are seen as nothing but trouble.

Josie desperately misses her family and Clyde, but there is one small glimmer of hope in her otherwise grey and endless days: a foundling boy by the name of Leo Hastings.

When Leo is stolen from her, just like everyone else she has ever loved, Josie turns to the only thing she has left...a scrap of paper and a small nub of a pencil.

Can one lonely, orphaned child really change her own fate? Or will she end up just like the other forgotten children - alone and left to die on the cold hard streets of Victorian London?
