Summary

Weirdest. Crime Fighters. Ever. Sheba, the fur-faced Wolfgirl, can sniff out a threat from miles away. Monkeyboy clambers up bridges and 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.

From Freaks
The knife drew closer, cutting through the smoke in slow motion, now inches away from her neck
With wide eyes, Sheba saw the triumphant grin on Mrs
Crowley's face; one that rapidly changed to horror as something small and stinky and betailed bounced off the nearest wall and onto her head
"Monkeyboy!" Sheba shouted
She was about to help him when the floor beneath her gave a violent lurch
She looked down
The boards had given way, opening up a fire-filled hole to the floor below
For one horrible moment she teetered, about to spill down into the flames

Excerpts

From Freaks:

The knife drew closer, cutting through the smoke in slow motion, now inches away from her neck. With wide eyes, Sheba saw the triumphant grin on Mrs. Crowley's face; one that rapidly changed to horror as something small and stinky and betailed bounced off the nearest wall and onto her head.

"Monkeyboy!" Sheba shouted. She was about to help him when the floor beneath her gave a violent lurch.

She looked down. The boards had given way, opening up a fire-filled hole to the floor below. For one horrible moment she teetered, about to spill down into the flames.
