ALA notable author Iain Lawrence pens a moving tale with a Dickensian atmosphere about a young man's life aboard a cruel 19th-century prison ship. Fourteen-year-old Tom Tin is forced to scavenge on the grimy streets of London after his father is sent to debtor's prison. Tom's survival is threatened by the sinister lowlifes that inhabit his hopeless world. But when he is unjustly arrested for murder, he finds a place that is even worse than the dark city streets.

    " I read this one hoping to find a book that I could recommend to students in my class who enjoyed adventures. I think this one was a bit violent for my tastes and there seemed to be too many terrible things that happened to the main character...even Oliver Twist's life wasn't this hard! The string of tragic events just seemed too far-fetched to me. I also didn't have much empathy for the main character. He came across as very selfish throughout most of the book. "

    " Tom Tin finds the legendary Jolly Stone. Supposedly it's bad luck landed him on a convict ship, mistaken for the cruel "smasher". But is it really bad luck after all? "

    " Iain Lawrence writes creepy historical novels, and this book definitely fits. It's not super-natural scary, but real-life scary, which is almost worse. It's a fun read. "

    " I thought this book was great. It was clear and i understood all of it! The was only about one part that i didn't understand, it was a little confusing, but that was it. "
