Tim (DrWatson27) | 2 comments I read this in middle school & really enjoyed it my sons are now of that age and I would love to share it with them. Story was about a boy in age range of 11-14 I think. He was homeless and living on his own in the subway of NY in a tiny nook no one knew about. I remember he was befriended by a restaurant owner who lets him work for food and cash. I feel like the cover had a picture of the boy wearing glasses with one cracked lens-but I could be wrong. Any ideas?

Meagan | 52 comments I don't know that one but my favorite book of all time is about a homeless boy who is just trying to survive and it really is a great book but it does have drugs and prostitution and bad words in it it doesn't actually have any sex scenes in it that I remember...
