A heart warming true story that tells of the friendship that forms between a business woman, Laura, and a neglected street boy, Maurice. She mentors him and provides him with experiences and skills that alter his world view and change his life for the better. This story is truly touching, but concentrates more on Laura’s experience than Maurice’s. It would have been better told with alternating view points, including more of Maurice’s voice. Still a great story to read about the goodness in people despite adversity.
