Publisher's Description

When her best friend vanishes without so much as a good-bye, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail takes on the role of amateur sleuth in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. Given that Piper’s tendency has always been to butt heads with high-society’s expectations of her, it’s no surprise that she doesn’t give a second thought to searching for answers to Lydia’s abduction from their privileged neighborhood.

As Piper discovers that those answers might stem from the corruption strangling 1924 Chicago—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.

Perfect for fans of Libba Bray and Anna Godbersen, Stephanie Morrill’s atmospheric jazz-age mystery will take readers from the glitzy homes of the elite to the dark underbelly of 1920s Chicago.

In The Lost Girl of Astor Street, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail’s best friend, Lydia, goes missing. Piper is determined to find out what happened to her friend. Piper has a number of suspects; was it the chauffeur on whom Lydia had a crush? Or how about the creepy father of the little boy she was the nanny for? Could it have been Lydia’s own father who didn’t want the secret of her epilepsy to get out and ruin his practice? And let’s not forget that 1924 Chicago is run by the opposing mafias, Irish and Italian, whom Piper’s father represents as a criminal defense attorney. Was Lydia even the original target? Piper is going to solve this case and bring justice for her friend, no matter what the cost. (5 star review by Christina Boswell) On the back cover of this book, one author says, “If Veronica Mars met the Roaring Twenties, you’d end up with The Lost Girl of Astor Street.” I cannot think of a more accurate description. Piper is very similar to Veronica Mars, who happens to be one of my favorites, so I very much enjoyed this book. Piper is easy to connect with as a young woman who can’t just sit around and do nothing while her best friend is missing, and she struggles to conform to society’s ideals. Ms. Morrill did a wonderful job of making great characters, of thoroughly researching the setting, and of still writing a worthwhile mystery. I personally loved that there was nothing inappropriate, no foul language, and no sex scenes. Just a good old-fashioned mystery that is a fun read. If you like Veronica Mars, you will enjoy this book, just like I did.
“A story that has it all---mystery, the mafia, and a heroine you can’t help but root for. If Veronica Mars met the Roaring Twenties, you’d end up with The Lost Girl of Astor Street!” Roseanna M. White, author of The Lost Heiress
“Piper Sail is a character I’d follow to the ends of the earth---she had me from the very first page. With its smart, savvy heroine and moody Jazz-Age setting, Stephanie Morrill has penned a winner from start to finish.” Bestselling author Hillary Manton Lodge
“A historical mystery full of heart and brimming with the vibrant atmosphere of 1920s Chicago. The moment I finished I was ready to flip it over and begin again.” Shannon Dittemore, author of the Angel Eyes trilogy
“Spunky Piper Sail is more interested in investigating her best friend’s death than in society’s expectations for a young woman in 1924. She’s curious, intelligent and gutsy … Reminiscent of Philip Pullman’s Sally Lockhart series in all the best ways!” Maureen Doyle McQuerry, award-winning author of The Peculiars and the Time Out of Time duet: The Telling Stone and Beyond the Door
“Witty and compelling, The Girl of Astor Street is as thick with romance as it is with evolving mysteries. Piper Sail is a 1920s heroine to root for … A truly fresh and engaging story that not only kept me guessing until the very end, but that left me with a satisfied sigh for more please!” Joanne Bischof, award-winning author of The Lady and the Lionheart
“A fast-paced mystery that sparkles with the sights and sounds of 1920s Chicago. The strong characters and setting drew me in, and the twists and turns kept me hooked until the end.” Renee Collins, author of Until We Meet Again
“A well-plotted mystery with plenty of twists, turns, and red herrings.” Publishers Weekly
“Enjoyable…mystery with a twist for inquisitive readers.” School Library Journal
