The Diamond of Drury Lane: A Cat Royal Adventure

The Diamond of Drury Lane: A Cat Royal Adventure by Julia Golding
Orphan Catherine "Cat" Royal, living at the Drury Lane Theater in 1790s London, tries to find the "diamond" supposedly hidden in the theater, which unmasks a treasonous political cartoonist, and involves her in the street gangs of Covent Garden and the world of nobility.

...Fabulous rollicking adventure set in Victorian London with a feisty young heroine, rival gangs, theatre, boxing, and much more. Great well developed characters who get into all sorts of scrapes in the hunt for the 'Diamond' of the title...I loved it.
