From Her Universe comes The Confidence Chronicles, a steampunk fantasy, mystery and adventure that takes place in gold rush California. Have you ever wanted to travel back in time to 1876? To have an adventure in gold rush California? How about a place where a robot owl can be a girl's best friend, and instead of mining for gold, people try to magically conjure it in their laboratories like the wizards and alchemists of old? Where you can try rutabaga sodawater surprise (tip: don't) and where mysteries lurk behind smiling faces and neighbor's front doors? Where messages are carried by mechanical bees and the Centennial Exhibition, the world's biggest fair, is only months away and you have your very own ticket to go? If the answer is yes, open this book and be transported to a world where all this is possible, and more. Your adventure begins in the town of Confidence, California, and there's no telling where it might take you from there.
