Street Child by Berlie Doherty

Do you know how you can tell a book is good just by looking at its cover? By looking for the ones that have Essential Modern Classics at the top! Well, this is one of those …

Street Child is based on a true story about Jim Jarvis and his battle for survival out on the streets of London in the 1800s. But this is no place for a boy. Jim must use all his courage to escape from the dreaded workhouse and find somewhere safe, which will be exceptionally difficult.

My favourite character was Jim, because he was very kind and he was caring and compassionate towards other people.

I would recommend this book to 8+ because this type of audience would appreciate what a marvel the story really is. I would give this a 9/10.
