A stunning historical fantasy novel about the power of friendship and our potential for courage, set in Victorian London.

For nearly a century, Victorian London relied on 'climbing boys' – orphans owned by chimney sweeps – to clean flues and protect homes from fire. The work was hard, thankless, and brutally dangerous. 11-year-old Nan Sparrow is quite possibly the best climber who ever lived – and a girl. With her wits and will, she's managed to beat the deadly odds time and time again. But when Nan gets stuck in a deadly chimney fire, she fears her time has come. Instead, she wakes to find herself in an abandoned attic. And she is not alone. Huddled in the corner is a mysterious creature – a golem – made from ash and coal. This is the creature that saved her from the fire. Sweep is the story of a girl and her monster. Together, these two outcasts carve out a life – saving one another in the process. By one of today's most powerful storytellers, Sweep is a heartrending adventure about the everlasting gifts of friendship and hope.

'This dazzling, warmhearted novel contemplates selflessness and saving, deep love and what makes a monster.'
