it was amazing

The fast pacing of this book is immediately apparent in the opening chapters. Miriam, a young girl from a wealthy family, is orphaned when her industrialist father dies. Enter the Marchpanes, her assigned guardian and business partner of Miriam's father. The Marchpanes, under the firm control of the vicious and witchy Mrs. Marchpane, move into the mansion and immediately set out to gain control of the family money and company. They get rid of Miriam by putting her in the Night Watchman Express, a mysterious train headed to a sinister place called Devil's Kitchen where kids are thrown into forced labor and become subjects of nefarious experiments. The story is a mixture of fairy tale, mystery, and adventure story reminiscent of Nancy Drew and the Magic Tree House. A good read for a young adult reader.
