The Unexpected Life of Oliver Cromwell Pitts: A Novel by Avi

In an English seaside town, 1724, Oliver Pitts wakes to find his father missing and his house flooded. Oliver's father has left a note: he's gone to London, where Oliver's older sister may be in trouble. Exploring damage to the town in the aftermath of a storm, the penniless boy discovers a shipwreck. Removing anything from a wreck is a hanging offense, but Oliver can't resist the temptation to take money that could save his life. He's soon thrown into the filthy, terrifying poorhouse for his crime, but manages to escape, following his father's trail. The journey is full of scoundrels and treachery--and London might be the most dangerous place of all.
