Confessions of a Teenage Body Snatcher

Here’s the thing about body snatching. You just can’t think about what you’re doing. You can’t feel sorry for the person, or think they look like your mother, your brother or your sister. You can’t feel bad. In fact, you can’t feel anything. That’s the key. Because the minute you start feeling something, it’s over. You’re dead – pennies on the eyes, dirt on the face dead. It’s no way to live, but for some, it’s the only way. Until they come for you . . .

Previously named a Junior Library Guild selection, Publishers Weekly called CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BODY SNATCHER, “A haunting tour of London’s underclass during the 1830s . . . Teens will likely be both captivated by Victor’s harrowing story as well as his ability to prevail in the face of harsh injustices.” VOYA said, “Teen readers will thoroughly enjoy the hair-raising suspense in this historical thriller.” KLIATT said, “Like M.T. Anderson’s The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, this look at sinister events in history makes the era come alive and lingers in the memory.” And School Library Journal said, “Part historical fiction and part adventure story, the novel brings excitement to Victorian England . . . Readers will be on the edge of their seats.”

Originally published in hard cover by Penguin/Dutton under the title Resurrection Men by T.K. Welsh (the author’s pen name), this novel has since been republished in soft cover and for the Kindle by Cornucopia Press under the title CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BODY SNATCHER by J.G. Sandom (the author’s birth name).
