Encourage your students to think about the issues of homelessness with this gripping real-life drama

From the Back Cover:

JIM JARVIS IS A RUNAWAY

When his mother dies, Jim is all alone in the workhouse and is desperate to escape. But London in the 1860s is a dangerous and lonely place for a small boy and life is a constant battle for survival. Just when Jim finds some friends, he is snatched away and made to work for the remorselessly cruel Grimy Nick, constantly guarded by his vicious dog, Snipe. Will Jim ever be free?

Jim’s gripping adventure is based on the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children’s refuge.

‘A terrific adventure story, heart-warmingly poignant and a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. A magnificent story for the over-tens.’
