Knowing only life in a soulless orphanage with no love or happiness where he has been since birth, Spencer finally runs away from the cruelty he is subjected to by various foster families, at fourteen. Totally reliant on his own initiative, he finds himself friendless, penniless and homeless living under the railway arches in central London. Not without severe discomfort and hard work, he gradually finds a way out of his predicament using both legal and illegal means, as he gets himself an invaluable training in mechanics but it is what he learns about life that proves to be his salvation. A compelling read offering a picture of the criminal mind versus conscience and everyone's need for love and affection.
