George or should I say Georgina is born in the poorest areas. Her/his mother dies in childbirth and so begins George's story.
Raised as a boy by his/her father who's an accomplished thief and his/her grandmother life is one long, hard and rough struggle!
Please tell me there's another one soon. Definitely recommend it and it deserves more than five stars!!
I cannot praise this book enough!!!!
