Can anyone recommend a Young Adult historical fiction novel that takes places in Victorian England (1837 - 1901). Thx!

I loved A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY by Libba Bray, though it is also fantasy.

Marissa Doyle's BEWITCHING SEASON is another fantasy that is a lot of fun.

Prisoner at the Palace is quite literally about Victoria via a maid's perspective.

If you want straight historical, try The Agency series, starting with A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee. Lots of fun and set in a diverse Victorian London.
