About the Book

From Wikipedia: "Is Underground is the eighth book in the series of novels by Joan Aiken normally called the Wolves Chronicles and sometimes the James III sequence. Where previous books have followed the characters Bonny, Sylvia, Simon and particularly street-urchin Dido Twite, this marks the first appearance of Dido's sister Is Twite as the main protagonist. The story follows Is from London to the fictional town of Blastburn in the north of England, in her quest to discover the mystery behind the disappearance of many London children and to track down two missing boys in particular. Like the rest of the books in this series, Is takes place in an 'alternative history' version of the early nineteenth-century and has elements of steampunk and magical realism."
