Lyra is a young girl who's been very loosely brought up on the campus of Oxford University.  Lord Asriel, her uncle who is often away on arctic explorations, suddenly returns to present his discovery of a universe parallel to this one but can only be seen dimly in the northern lights.  He wants a grant from the university for another expedition, but the religious establishment takes a very dim view of his research.  After his departure to the north, Lyra hears of children being kidnapped, by who and for what purpose is still unknown.  The Master gives her an alethiometer (not a compass at all) that can tell her when somebody is lying by pointing to what is true, or will point to what is true when nobody will answer.  Lyra has been invited to come to London and live with a beautiful woman named Mrs. Coulter.  Gradually, with help from the alethiometer, Lyra comes to realize that Mrs. Coulter is the head of the General Oblation Board, which is behind the abductions.  She also learns that Lord Asriel has been captured by Tartars and is being held prisoner among the "armored bears".  She runs away to join the Gyptians, who's children have been kidnapped, to become part of their expedition north to find and rescue the children and Lord Asriel.  Mrs. Coulter isn't far behind and will eventually capture her.  A very good read!  (See Number 11 below.)
