Very Touching Story

The Boy From the Basement - Susan Shaw

If you remember A Child Called It, this book is similar. It is very timely since recently written. It's a moving story for a reader of any age, and there's nothing to preclude it being read by middle school students on up. It shows other kids as well as adults helping Charlie, who has been locked up in the basement of his family home for an extended time. I enjoyed it and recommend it for adults who care about kids as well as younger readers. Get from library rather than buy...it's a very short and touching read.
