A vivid description of the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 forms the center of this tale of an orphan boy trying to find a home for himself. I read it all in one sitting-- couldn't put it down. Combine it with Laurence Yep's Dragonwings and The Earth Dragon Awakes, Kristiana Gregory's Earthquake at Dawn, and Simon Winchester's children's version of A Crack in the Edge of the World.

Lisa Vegan Ooh, I'd never heard of this. And on to my to-read list it goes.

Lisa Vegan Abigail, What was the first book in the series? I'm OCD about reading books in a series in order!


Think I found it: The Strange Files of Fremont Jones. Oh well, and two books (first two in series) go on to my list. ;-)

Lisa Vegan The series looks really interesting to me. I'd never heard of it until now. Thanks!


Krista the Krazy Kataloguer Well, you've convinced me. The Fremont series goes on my "to-read" list as well!

Lisa Vegan Abigail, Ha ha. Well, perhaps not. It's possible other members will come upon this thread and become another Goodreads victim. We'll have to wait and see.
