Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


Doc, a young boy, has grown up working like a slave in a mine with daily beatings and feeling like his life will never be different.

That all changes on his twelfth birthday, starting with one act of kindness.

Doc's character develops well, his confidence grows and he shows how amazing he is.


It's so good traveling alongside him, so as sad as I was for his journey to come to and end, I'm thrilled that there is more to come.
