The streets of 1893 New York are crowded and filthy. For thirteen-year-old newsboy Maks Geless, they are also dangerous. Bruno, leader of the awful Plug Ugly Gang, has set his sights on Maks and orders his boys to track him down. Suddenly Maks finds himself on the run, with new friend, Willa, by his side. A riveting adventure set against a backdrop alive with the sights and sounds of tenement New York, from Newbery Medalist Avi.
