The book focuses on the life of a young boy ,his ambition to succeed at an early age and be different from kids his own age makes the story stand out amongst others ,the author stood out with this masterpiece.
About the story
Starting from his first job as a paper boy to selling ice cream and working as a busboy ,all those jobs are pretty not easy especially for kids his age ,some might even find it unbelievable but me being from Africa certainly knows it is possible as I have seen similar circumstances on many occasions.
After reading about the author Jorge p. Newbery I found out he used similar event which occurred to him early in his life in as an inspiration in writing this book,him telling us about his life experiences makes the book more real and am even tempted to buy the book and keep it for when I get married and have children so as to prepare them for any burn zones they might face in the future. Just like he said we should learn to face our burn zones head on.
Am giving it a five star rating would have giving more if it was possible. 4 out of 4
