Alchemy and Meggy Swann
Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
With a name like Meggy Swann everything in life should be lovely. Unfortunately, that is very far from the truth when your legs are crippled, your mother finds you a bother, and everyone in London shuns the unfortunate. However, it is Meggy's high spirit and determination that carry her through the difficult daily tasks. Sent to her father, Meggy arrives with not much more than her goose. With his alchemy experiments failing, money is scarce and her father's needs are quite demanding. Soon she finds herself caught up in her father's dark schemes and she is determined that things do not go as planned.
