It’s 1914, and Daring Darleen is the twelve-year-old star of the silent screen adventures. Unexpectedly, her film studio ploy for publicity goes wrong, and Darleen is kidnapped, along with rich orphan Victorine Berryman. Now Darleen and Victorine must use everything they have learned, Darleen from her work in movies, and Victorine from her life of privilege, to escape from their captors and bring the wicked to justice.

Daring Darleen is a dip into the past, and it’s quite well done, with vividly complex characters and wild leaps from windows and a fascinating setting in the world of early film.
