Emily, Calthorpe Park School
Beck is a mixed race boy in the time of the American depression, and throughout his childhood, he travels from the UK, to Canada and America. I really liked this book, throughout the whole thing you 'root' for Beck and hope he finds a nice family to live with. His life is full of ups and downs, and I was determined to read on and hope he ends up on a high. Beck has to deal with abuse, love and loss, and with the struggle of travelling on foot across countries. I couldn't put this book down! However, this book is for older readers and I wouldn't recomend it if you are in Year 7 or 8, ask your teacher for advice.
