Review: Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet

Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet by H.P. Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coney Island, 1904
It's full of locals, tourists and "freaks" who call themselves "The Unusuals"

Kitty Hayward, just arrived from South Africa is looking for a special medicine for her sick mother. When she returns to the ship where her mother is, she's gone. Looking for her, she meets all the inhabitants of Coney Island, especially those from Magruder's.

There's an extraordinary cast of characters, and this is a book that lets your imagination run wild. You can picture the boardwalk, the attractions, the clothes, the smells and the colors.

When the place is put under quarantine due to the plague, The Unusuals get together to defend their place against outsiders. There's the good ones and the bad ones, but they're all different, each one perfectly described.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
