Quick but incredible read about a 15 year old, Charley Thompson, who’s Mother left early in life and has a loser for a Father. Although basically being left on his own before to find food, after his Father dies Charley is left homeless. With nothing to start with he begins his saga of searching for his dream of a stable environment, ability to go to school and play football, and live a normal life. He first clings to a racehorse named Lean on Pete as his only vision of comfort amidst a cast of hopeless characters and desperate circumstances trying to survive as he searches for a long lost Aunt.
