Item description for Nuestro pequeýýo Billy (Our Kid) by Billy Hopkins...

In the barren landscape left behind by German bombs during WW II, little Billy lives happily with his large Catholic family in a tenement home on the outskirts of Manchester, an area that would be considered a slum by today's standards. Determined to be the first person in his family to go to college, Billy takes all kinds of odd jobs and is constantly hatching moneymaking schemes with his friends. The entertaining and sometimes downright hilarious tone of this autobiography paints a poignant picture of a time in history that is otherwise gray and desolate. It is also a reminder that through courage and hope anything is possible. Description in Spanish: En el escenario desolador del Londres arrasado por las bombas alemanas en la II Guerra Mundial, Nuestro pequeo Billy es una historia autobiogrfica de coraje, esperanza y espritu de lucha. Billy ---el propio Billy Hopkins--- sufre estoicamente las penalidades de la guerra y desarrolla toda clase de oficios con el objetivo de ser el primer miembro de su familia que estudie en la universidad. Con esta perspectiva, la novela se convierte en un documento sobre una poca histrica, en el que lo terrible queda en un segundo plano gracias al tono divertido y, a veces, incluso hilarante, de la narracin. Energa positiva en estado puro.
