Alchemy and Meggy Swann by Karen Cushman

Meggy Swann is crippled, and can't walk without the help of walking sticks. Her mother doesn't like her and sends her to her father, who doesn't want her either. Her father is an alchemist, and she discovers a terrible secret. This book was very engaging. The speech of the character's was old-fashioned, but not to the point where the book becomes cumbersome.
