I thought this book was great! We had it as a class book to read over the half term. At first, I had mixed feelings about this book but as I read the first page, I was completely hooked. The book is about a boy called Jim Jarvis (this book is set in Victorian times) who becomes homeless is then sent to the workhouse, and lves in different places. He meet new friends and has two sisters: Lizzie and Emily and his mother. I think this book was quite dark at the start but eventually becomes a happy ending.
