This book, the Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons, was absolutely marvelous! There is so much to this book that makes everything so satisfying and beautiful!

The beginning felt slightly rushed, but everything that happened afterwards is wonderful!

A thoroughly enjoyable middle-grade novel, appropriate for 7-14 year olds. This book is a lovely and imaginative adventure, complete with (unresolved) mystery and magic, and a bit of mayhem. Considering the sheer volume of unanswered questions by the end of the book, I assume it's the first in a series (I am hoping for it to be, anyway, and for the series to be as moving as the Gregor the Overlander series was for me). Lucy is a very likeable character who has all the hallmarks of a budding heroine. I look forward to joining her on her continuing adventures in the Victorian-era nautical world that Mariconda has created.
