Mrs C, King James's Royal Readers

Beck

A moving and vividly described story of a young boy in the early 20th century that is unfortunately based on fact.
I found the story, despite its subject matter very readable, without the very descriptive chapter 1.7 of the abuse Beck suffered which made it a book for older readers, the journey he made from boy to young man was both interesting and upsetting. Understandably he felt little hope and knew nothing of true affection, however the conclusion offered a promise of hope even though it seemed a slightly improbable end.
