A Boy Called Dickens is a 5-STAR book. I like this book because it teaches me about a boy who wrote stories named Charles. This book taught me what it was like for him to write new stories. I learned that Charles Dickens has a hard childhood. He lost his home, and his family went to jail because his daddy couldn't pay the bills. Charles Dickens had leave school and get a job at 12 years old! This made Charles sad because all he wanted to do was go to school, read every book, and write his own stories. I learned that Charles Dickens grew up and became a very famous author. His dreams came true. I like this book because I learned not to give up on my dreams -- that's a bad choice. I think kids should read this book because it teaches you to not give up on your goals even when things look bad.
