The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent -- ADVISABLE

Trent, Tiffany The Unnaturalists, 305 p. Simon, 2012.  $17. 

Language: G (2 swears); Violence: PG (dead bodies); Mautre Content: G.  

In the great city of London, they hold magical creatures, such as the Sphinx, in suspended animation inside museums for their amusement.  Outside the city, the Tinkers rescue the magical children(babies) of London, who have been left to die outside the gates because magic is considered heretical.  When Vespa, the daughter of a museum director,  discovers her own magic powers, she is dragged into both sides of the fight between the two sides – by the spoiled daughter of a rich Londener who will use Vespa to steal what Vespa wants most for herself, and by the Tinkers – who know that Vespa is the last defense the whole world has before magic disappears forever.  

Any girl who sees this cover is going to want to become a little steampunk themselves.  And they will not be disappointed by what is inside.
