Born at the stroke of midnight on Friday, the thirteenth of December, 1895, Billy Creekmore was destined for a hard-luck life. His mother died within hours of his birth; his father deserted him, leaving him in the care the midwife who delivered him; and she handed Billy over to the Guardian Angels Home for Boys--in reality, a Dickensian orphanage. Steven Boyer, the voice of 10-year-old Billy, breathes life into Porter's historical novel. Billy is one of the "throw-way children" used and abused by the adults entrusted to care for them. Boyer portrays him in a voice filled with hope for the future in spite of the hopelessness of the past--and brings to life an inspiring story of human resilience and survival against all odds.
