The most dreaded place in Renaissance England is the TOWER OF LONDON. 
So when 15-year-old Ben sees Princess Elizabeth being locked up inside, he's alarmed. The Princess is a girl, not a criminal! Ben longs to help the Princess escape, but he’s just an orphaned coal boy. What can he do? The next day while delivering coal to the Princess’s cell, Ben and the Princess devise a daring plan. 

But danger lurks at every turn in the Tower's maze-like corridors and twisting stairwells. Just when triumph seems at hand, the notorious Beefeater guards catch Ben and throw him into a rat-infested dungeon. Can Ben scale the fortress walls and escape across the putrid moat? Or is he doomed to join the ghosts of prisoners past in the Tower's darkest depths?

From multi-award winning Ellie Crowe and Scott Peters comes a riveting, kid-powered survival adventure.
