Hyacinth and the Secrets Beneath by Jacob Sager Weinstein

Before Hyacinth Hayward moves from Illinois to London, she reads up on the city's history. Too bad for her. Because the books are wrong. The truth is, London was built on magical rivers, and all the major events in its past have been about people trying to control the magic.

Hyacinth discovers this when her mom is kidnapped. In the chase to get her back, Hyacinth encounters a giant intelligent pic in a bathing suit, a boy with amnesia, an adorable tosher (whatever that is), a sarcastic old lady, and a very sketchy unicorn. Somehow, Hyacinth has to figure out who to trust so she can save her mom and, oh yeah, not cause a second Great Fire of London.

Update: Congrats, Brooke S.!
