Summary :

Kevin O' Donnell may be poor right now, but he's not going to stay that way for long--not if he has anything to do with it. With his father unable to work and a little sister to support, Kevin needs to find work, any work.

But jobs aren't easy to come by in New York during 1881, especially for a twelve-year-old immigrant boy. So Kevin finds himself scrambling, desperately seeking ways to make a few dollars here and there. And he begins cutting a few corners. When he's discovered "borrowing" and reselling newspapers, he knows he's in for it the workhouse, or maybe even jail.

That's why he's shocked when the elegant man who caught him offers him his dream job: a job on the man's newspaper. Now it's up to Kevin to make it work. But can he leave the slums behind him, or will his attitude doom him to remain a boy from the streets?
