November’s FYA Book Club Pick

Anatomy: A Love Story by Dana Schwartz

It’s 1817 and Hazel Sinnet is a lady. She should be interested in tea with members of the ton, finding a husband, and securing herself a place in society. But Hazel is only interested in one thing: medicine. Hazel wants to be a doctor more than she’s ever wanted anything in her life. So badly, in fact, that she dresses as a boy to sneak into the famous Dr. Beecham’s medicine lectures. When Hazel gets caught and kicked out of lecture, she makes a deal with Dr. Beecham: if she can pass the exam on her own, she can enroll in university. The only problem? Hazel needs bodies to study medicine.

Jack Currer is a resurrection man – he sneaks around graveyards at night, digging up bodies to sell to the likes of Dr. Beecham and the Edinburgh Anatomist’s Society. And after a chance encounter, he just might be the perfect person to help Hazel. But Jack has problems of his own. His friends and co-workers keep going missing and Edinburgh’s poorest citizens are disappearing off the streets – sometimes returning with missing limbs and no memory of what happened. Hazel and Jack must work together to find out what’s really going on, and they have to do it before they’re the next ones to disappear.
