Cute! But didn't Mrs. Sharp know where Deryn was off to? I know "Dylan" said "he" gave "his" ma the slip, but in Deryn's first or second chapter it says her ma an aunties are waiting for her in Glasgow, convinced this mad scheme wouldn't work, or some thing like that. But I still love Mrs. Sharp. I've never really been able to get a clear picture of her in my mind. Is she in mourning?
--- Deryn was quite astounding, really, and entirely worth throwing away an empire for.
