Journal Entry 1 by DottyDi from Dartford, Kent United Kingdom on Monday, June 22, 2009
Twelve-year-old Ren, abandoned as an infant at Saint Anthony's orphanage, is missing his left hand. He doesn't know why; in fact, the only thing of which he can be sure is that no one will ever adopt him.
Then a young man named Benjamin Nab appears, claiming to be Ren's long-lost brother. Soon Ren finds himself on a strange journey through nineteenth-century New England, entangled with grave-robbers, thieves and murderers, while Benjamin's stories become more outlandish and Ren's dreams of a family recede even further. Should he stay and become one of the gang, or escape and be alone once more? And - if he survives Benjamin's riskiest scheme - will the truth about his parentage be something he really wants to know?

A bit obscure and dark in places, but worth a read.
