If nobody wants him, that's fine.He'll just take care of himself.When his father dies, Dave knows nothing will ever be thesame. And then it happens. Dave lands in an orphanage -- the cold and strict Hebrew Home for Boys in Harlem -- far from the life he knew on the Lower East Side. But he's not so worried. He knows he'll be okay. He always is. If it doesn't work out, he'll just leave, find a better place to stay. But it's not that simple.Outside the gates of the orphanage, the nighttime streets of Harlem buzz with jazz musicians and swindlers; exclusive parties and mystifying strangers. Inside, another world unfolds, thick with rare friendships and bitter enemies. Perhaps somewhere, among it all, Dave can find a place that feels like home.

I read many chapter books when I was younger but this one felt like an accomplishment for me for many reasons. It was a bigger one for me at the age when I read it and the themes of this book taught me a lot as it did for Dave, the main character. To this day I remember being drawn to the cover and the story plot and finishing it rather quickly. It helped me feel more confident as a reader and led me to reading more and longer length of books as I got older. This is a great read for young girls and boys, this story of confidence and acceptance would relate to many even now.
