    A Victorian tale of poverty on the streets of Liverpool. A homeless brother and sister and how they survived. This is a reread for me, I read this book in school, I loved it then and it's still as good now. A story that is heart wrenching in parts and full of emotion throughout, I defy you not to tear up when reading this. It is written alot in northern dialect, which some people may struggle with, other than that it's a beautifully written story, one that the author tells us contains more truth than fiction, which just breaks my heart all over again. Only thing left to say is, read it.
