I read the book The Hunchback Assignments by Arthur Slade. A guy named Mr.Socrates rescues a child named Modo. Modo's face is deformed and he has a hunchback. Modo can change his ugly face into a normal face. But he can not do this for a long time.He is really ugly, and Mr.Socrates does not let him see the world until he is 14. Modo lives his life seperated from the world as an agent for the Permanent Association.
When Modo is out on the streets in London, he meets Octavia Milkweed. Octavia Milkweed is another Association agent who helps Modo discover the truth about missing children. Their enemies are a mysterious Clockwork Guild and their mad scientist Dr.Hyde. Dr.Hyde wants to transform humans into living robots.Modo and Octavia fight many people in order to discover the terrifying plot against the British government. Octavia and Modo are determined to save their country. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading a book that takes place in the Victorian era.
