Jimmy turned to step from the gutter to the sidewalk. Two things happened to him simultaneously: Mickey became a projectile and smashed with the force of a wiry fist on the larger boy's head, while above both, an athletic arm was thrust out, and gripped him by the collar.

Mickey is a class act. This book, although sappy in places is great and though it is nearly set at the turn of the last century the observances of human nature and how to live life are square on the mark. Buy it, read it and live it.
