Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Imprisoned in a tall thin house in the Great Black City with a bare cellar for a bedroom, she is forced to work by her wicked aunt and uncle. Clementine is NEVER allowed out. Her only view of the outside world is from the high up window in her dank cellar. All she has ever known is the Great Black City and her only friend is a cat called Gilbert. But Clementine has a dream, she has hope, spirit and pluck and not even the ghastly Aunt Vermilla and Uncle Rufus can squash that... A cracking good yarn that will have you rooting for Clementine every step of the way.
