New York City. 1899. Abigail Reid just wants to go to school and get an education. A poor farm girl who only recently moved to New York from the country, she quickly learns that New York City can be a very dangerous place.
The Longshadows, the ruthless gangsters that control her neighborhood, have her surrounded, but just when Abigail thinks she is all alone, she meets the legendary LITTLE WADE AND WATCHTOWER! With their help, Abigail will discover that she is far braver and more capable than she ever imagined and that New York City can be a wonderful place. Together, they plan to set The Great Gang Trap and rid her neighborhood of the Longshadows once and for all! Unfortunately, the Longshadows are not the only threat in New York.
“The writing is like singing the way that things are described…I recommend “Little Wade and Watchtower: The Great Gang Trap” to both boys and girls ages 10-15. Even though the main character is a girl, boys will like all the non-stop action. There’s a lot everyone can enjoy, science, adventure, mystery, ghosts, friends, and more.”
