Beck by Mall Peet is an excellent, well written book which explores the life of a black, British orphan from Liverpool (Beck) living in Canada during the time of the Depression. The book follows Beck throughout his early life as he tries to understand the world he lives in and searches for a place to belong. Despite being a harrowing read at times, Beck is both challenging for the reader as well as being very exiting. As the book progresses you develop an understanding of Beck's world through his eyes; this is very interesting for the reader and generates many different thoughts. I strongly recommend this book, though it does contain some adult aspects so I would direct it more to 12+.
