This 17 year old boy, who lives in an orphanage with these nuns, is constantly getting himself into trouble with fights at school and associating with the wrong kinds of people. Unfortunately, he's about to turn 18 and doesn't have the option of staying at the orphanage any longer but with a caretaker who sees his ability to become a professional boxer, a friend who wants to expand his not so legal business, and a teacher who sees his talented writing, his options are piling up. I would recommend this book more towards boys because it comes from the perspective of a boy. But also with a bit of romance involved, the girls could enjoy seeing the view point from a boy's perspective. You would like this book if you like… The Probability of Miracles.
