Here are children, some as young as 10-years-old, who take on the German Army, armed with just a handful of guns, unexploded bombs, and their own ingenuity. Children who are determined to defeat their advancing enemy and save their city, or die trying. In its awesome scope and pure listening excitement, Street Boys stands as a stirring tribute to the underdog in us all and a singular addition to the novels of World War II.

"While this is a story about children, it is most definitely not a story for children. Although not without moments of humor and romance, Street Boys is exciting, graphic, brutal, grim, and tense." (Library Journal)
