Alex | 2 comments Hi,

I've been looking for this book for forever but have had no luck. I can only remember vague details but hope this is enough:

- I read this book when I was younger so it was likely published before 2011/2012
- The protagonist was a young boy who may have been orphaned
- There was a rich family the book, who the boy might have been staying with the family, who picked up homeless people off the streets and ate them in pies and stews
- **SPOILER** at the end of the book the boy shaves his head and finds a tattoo of a map on it. I think there was only half the map and he had a twin who he had to find with the rest so I am assuming it was a series.

I hope this was enough.

Thank you!

Alex, what's the time period and location of the story?

What's the genre - YA historical, fantasy, science fiction, dystopian, horror, etc.?

The Compound by S.A. Bodeen?

Tagmash search on LibraryThing.com - young adult, cannibalism, rich

Apologies!! Thought I had put the time period in original post. Think it was around about Victorian or early 20th Century.

I think it was YA mystery with a bit of horror.

And thanks Rosa, I don't think it was The Compound either.
