The Cobbler's Boy by Elizabeth Bear, Katherine Addison


Kit Marlowe, boy detective! Friends, I loved this. The writing was captivating (I wasn't sure about the thees and thous at first, but once I got into it they started working for me) and Kit's burgeoning romance with his friend Ginger was very sweet and well done. I also really loved the portrayal of his sisters. It's definitely the kind of historical fiction that feels lived in, where the authors have clearly done their research but wear it lightly. I hope there will be more.
