Short Story # 1
This is definitely not a young adult story.
I simple love the title of the short story. I really like the cover too, but I think I would have been much happier if there had been more focus on the Corset. Though I really like the timepiece part. 
I love how the two characters give themselves names to keep distance. Peabody and Coddington. The name Peabody alone gave me a good laugh. I enjoy the second bath scene, which is strange for me because it's very ADULT. 
The only part of the book I didn't like was the first bath scene. That part actually annoyed me.
I would love to see how the children, come through the story. If they are educated, or even if they show. I very much enjoyed the story.
