Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Eighteen-year-old Piper Sail, daughter of a well-to-do 1920s Chicago mobster attorney, isn't an average society girl, like her best friend, Lydia, who is always the perfect lady. Piper is surprised and concerned when Lydia shares her plans to proclaim her love for her quiet and mysterious family chauffeur, Matthew, and she grows even more concerned after Lydia disappears. Consumed with grief over the loss of her best friend, Piper vows to solve the mystery of her disappearance, even if it means resorting to some unconventional and risky investigative methods. Piper has never been one to swoon over boys, but she nonetheless finds herself falling for Det. Mariano Cassano as she searches for clues. As Piper matures and begins to understand her father's profession, she questions her judgment and the character of the handsome detective because of his family's relationship to her father. This coming-of-age tale describes the struggles of a child growing up without a mother to reinforce the behavior so expected of women at the time. It's also the story of a young woman experiencing loss and first love and learning to accept circumstances and people for what and who they really are. Morrill successfully captures the dark side of 1920s Chicago and the mobster mentality. Strong supportive characters add depth to the novel, and the author keeps readers guessing on multiple fronts. VERDICT An enjoyable yet sobering mystery with a surprising twist for inquisitive readers.—Susan Harris, Ridgeway High School, TN

Review

“The Lost Girl of Astor Street boasts a strong, smart, and courageous heroine, a note-perfect Jazz-Age Chicago setting, and a terrifically engaging plot that kept me reading into the middle of the night.” Jennifer Robson, international bestselling author of Moonlight Over Paris (Jennifer Robson, international bestselling author of Moonlight Over Paris)

“Downton Abbey in downtown Chicago---a must read!” Allison Rushby, author of The Heiresses (Allison Rushby, author of The Heiresses)

“A story that has it all---mystery, the mafia, and a heroine you can’t help but root for. If Veronica Mars met the Roaring Twenties, you’d end up with The Lost Girl of Astor Street!” Roseanna M. White, author of The Lost Heiress (Roseanna M. White, author of The Lost Heiress)

“Piper Sail is a character I’d follow to the ends of the earth---she had me from the very first page. With its smart, savvy heroine and moody Jazz-Age setting, Stephanie Morrill has penned a winner from start to finish.” Bestselling author Hillary Manton Lodge (Bestselling author Hillary Manton Lodge)

“A historical mystery full of heart and brimming with the vibrant atmosphere of 1920s Chicago. The moment I finished I was ready to flip it over and begin again.” Shannon Dittemore, author of the Angel Eyes trilogy (Shannon Dittemore, author of the Angel Eyes trilogy)

“Spunky Piper Sail is more interested in investigating her best friend’s death than in society’s expectations for a young woman in 1924. She’s curious, intelligent and gutsy … Reminiscent of Philip Pullman’s Sally Lockhart series in all the best ways!” Maureen Doyle McQuerry, award-winning author of The Peculiars and the Time Out of Time duet: The Telling Stone and Beyond the Door (Maureen Doyle McQuerry, award-winning author of The Peculiars and the Time Out of Time duet: The Telling Stone and Beyond the Door)

“Witty and compelling, The Girl of Astor Street is as thick with romance as it is with evolving mysteries. Piper Sail is a 1920s heroine to root for … A truly fresh and engaging story that not only kept me guessing until the very end, but that left me with a satisfied sigh for more please!” Joanne Bischof, award-winning author of The Lady and the Lionheart (Joanne Bischof, award-winning author of The Lady and the Lionheart)

“A fast-paced mystery that sparkles with the sights and sounds of 1920s Chicago. The strong characters and setting drew me in, and the twists and turns kept me hooked until the end.” Renee Collins, author of Until We Meet Again (Renee Collins, author of Until We Meet Again)

“A well-plotted mystery with plenty of twists, turns, and red herrings.” Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)

“Enjoyable…mystery with a twist for inquisitive readers.” School Library Journal (School Library Journal)
