Cindy | 5 comments I only remember that they were twins and I think his name was Sammy. they were poor, had to pick pocket and had a horrible mother that I think dies from grief over loss of soon as the sister was supposed to watch him. He may have been mute. She then had to live with an aunt or something and the family was mean and abusive and that's when she became Sammy instead as she couldn't get over his death. and she felt his death was her fault as they were posting tag in the English streets. this book would likely be over a decade old if not more

Definitely could be that. But I can't find anything about the brother except that he dies by bicycle and I'm certain hegot run over by a horse . I guess it's only been within the last 7 years that I read it. I do remember the usher details of this book. Lots of plot that I didn't think included this part. Thanks
