Sam is just one of the many in Mr. Lyon's Orphanage. Throughout the years, Mr. Lyons has nurtured the boy's love for literacy by providing him great works like Of Mice and Men, which is a story of male bonding and endurance. And it is because of this that Sam has great respect for the man, although it was strange how he could never be able to read his mind. And the one thing that Sam yearned to know was how his parents died.
The whole story mainly comprised of life in the orphanage, which wasn't very stimulating. I wasn't fascinated by the characters or the tepid plot. The only compelling thing was the boy's ability to read minds, which didn't really go anywhere.
All in all, this book wasn't what I expected.
My rating: 2 stars
