This is a good book and has a great ending. One thing i love about it is that the setting is in Pittsburgh and i LOVE Pittsburgh. The book starts off kind of slow but you have to get through that and finish the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A book that shows love and determination
A boy named Mike is living during the depression. His father and his three uncles have a business called Costa Brothers, which is a restaurant. His grandfather is starting to become forgetful, and not even recognize Mike. Mike wants to help his grandfather, especially when his grandfather seems to be getting sick. Dead rats are appearing on the streets and two dead hobos also seem to have what Mike's grandfather has. Mike is worried for his grandfather and he discovers that the toughest boy in the school is also affected by the sickness. The only way to find out what's harming his grandfather is to treat the bully nicely and forgive him so he can find out information from him. Will this boy cooperate with Mike or will he turn him away? Will Mike ever find out what's hurting his grandfather? Read this book to find out. This book was a really nice book and it gave me an idea of what it was like to live in the depression. It's also a book about how to not use your fists, but rather fight with kindess from your heart.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
