Weirdest. Crime Fighters. Ever. Sheba, the fur-faced Wolfgirl, can sniff out a threat from miles away. Monkeyboy clambers up buildings in the blink of an eye -- then drops deadly stink bombs of his own making (yes, THAT kind)! Sister Moon sees in the dark, and moves at the speed of light. Born with weird abnormalities that make them misfits, these FREAKS spend their nights on public display, trapped in a traveling Victorian sideshow. But during the day, they put their strange talents to use: They solve the most sinister crimes. And in a dank, desperate world of crooks and child-snatchers, they're determined to defend London's most innocent victims: the street urchins disappearing from the city's streets.

I picked up this book from my library because the cover was appealing and I needed a book with a one word title for my Summer Reading. This is a very involved story for a children's book and I was not disappointed. There are traces of fantasy, paranormal, steampunk, and mystery/crime in this book and fans of any of those genres will really enjoy the story. The underlying themes of finding family where there is no blood relation, moving on from past hurts, and putting others needs before your own are prevalent and will help teach valuable lessons to children reading this book. Focusing especially on the main character's background and growth throughout the book lends a beautiful coming of age aspect to the book that will certainly reach younger kids getting to that pre-teen/teenager part of their lives.
