Book Overview
It's May 1910, and Halley's Comet is due to pass. Thirteen-year-old Hope McDaniels and her father are due to pass through their hometown of Chicago with their ragtag vaudeville troupe. Hope sees an opportunity: she invents anti-comet pills to sell to the working-class customers desperate for protection.
