Olivia Brownlow is no damsel in distress. Born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, she is as tough and cunning as they come. When she is taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, her life goes from fighting and stealing on the streets to lavish dinners and soirees as a debutante in high society. But she cant seem to escape her past or forget the teeming slums where children just like her still scrabble to survive.Jack MacCarron rose from his place in Londons East End to become the adopted nephew of a society matron. Little does society know that MacCarron is a false name for a boy once known among London gangs as the Artful Dodger, and that he and his aunt are robbing them blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia Brownlow in places he least expects, his curiosity is piqued. Why is a society girl helping a bunch of homeless orphan thieves? Even more intriguing, why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew?

Olivia Twist Reviews

  • Katy Noyes

    Dickens twisted - intriguing Victorian love/crime story with one big gender switch

    Dodger, Fagin, Bill Sykes. And an orphan girl dressed as a boy. With one small change, an entire new story can take place in Dickens' London. Perfect teenage introduction to the classic, with enough of a spirited heroine and spunky love interest to feel contemporary.

    Encouraged to dress as a boy to save herself from trouble, workhouse-born Olivia ends up on the streets, meets Dodger and his kind, but ends up being '

    I am such a fan of Oliver Twist in all its incarnations. I loved the book, the film, the play, and I always want some more. I was very interested in seeing Langdon put her spin on this story, and I must say, I was very pleased with the results.

    •Pro: I was delighted that Langdon did not try to rewrite the original story, but rather, took us to a point after the end of Oliver Twist. We get small peeks into the past, which will seem familiar to anyone acquainted with the original story, and even ge

    Love? The word smashed into his chest like a cannon ball. Who was he kidding? Every street kid knew love was nothing but a myth. But to have her by his side - to know she was his - would be enough.


    Overall: A new take on a old favorite, that kept me flipping the pages with its mystery and suspense, but mostly with its romance.

    As an avid reader of Dickens' works, I was prepared to hate this book as much as the movie currently in theaters entitled, Sherlock Gnomes. I shudder to think of it. How can anyone slaughter a classic in such a way?

    Thankfully readers of Lorie Langdon's Olivia Twist do not have to worry about the story being diluted by nonsense and slap-happy gnomes. In fact, this reimagined tale is almost a tribute to the characters that Charles Dickens created and modernizes many aspects that can be better unde

    (Originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com.)

    I’ve only read the original “Oliver Twist” once and it was quite a while ago, so I was intrigued when I ran across this gender-swapped retelling of the classic tale. However, in the end, I felt a bit misled by the book description and had a few problems with the characterization of our leading lady.

    Olivia grew up on the streets and it is only through a chance of luck that she now finds herself leading the life of a society lady. But even here, amids

    Oh. My. Word. Give this book all the stars! I implore you to add Olivia Twist to your TBR. Lorie Langdon’s inventive take on Oliver Twist completely stole my heart. It’s fresh and witty, one of those rare books where you feel like you are beholding something special.

    I adored Olivia as both the hard-scrabbling orphan posing as a boy and the lady trying to find where she belongs. She's come so far from where she was but she does not abandon her roots either. She steals small trinkets from the weal

    Best book I've read in 5 years

    So good! I've been in a slump of not reading during college but this was so good! Couldn't put it down. So yourself a favor and read. It. Now.

  • Heather Webb

    When I learned Lorie Langdon made a foray into historical romance, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. And she didn’t disappoint. Langdon expertly balances historical detailing and plot, the voice sparkles, and the characters were so endearing, I couldn’t wait to escape into this book each night. Lively and transportive, Olivia Twist is a romantic and clever take on a classic that will leave readers yearning for more from this author.

    Beautifully written, this gender-bent, Oliver Twist retelling is sure to sweep your heart away. The romance is sweet and sizzling, and the story is full of heart. I loved every moment.
