From the moment they arrived in America, Joey Calabro's parents have dreamed of moving to the country and buying a farm. But Joey has a different dream. He can't imagine living anywhere but Boston's North End. He loves the sights and sounds and smells of the neighborhood, from the horse-drawn wagons rumbling over the cobbled streets to the smell of salty air from the waterfront. Secretly, Joey plans to find a job, so he can stay in Boston's North End. One day while playing hookey from school, he heads down to the docks looking for work. What happens there seems to bring the world to an end. But when the pain subsides, Joey discovers a new dream and a new life. Carol Harris's spirited and moving novel carries readers back to the immigrant world of early twentieth-century Boston.
