    " This book is very touching and realistic. It is about a child who is dumped on the street and tries to survive. Although my life is completely different to his, I can still relate to him. I recommend this book! :D "

    " This is a good book for anybody who needs to remember that there are always people in worse spots then themselves. Young Jim is on his own in Old London and has to survive using his own wits. A great book for any ages. "
