He has never been to school, can not read, but fakes his way, causing folks to believe he can.

Interesting story about a young man who grows attached to the hotel employees, but must leave those he loves, and make new friends elsewhere.

128 pages. No bends or tears. Pages are yellowed.

Approx Grade 5 to 6 level.

Hard Bound cover is clean with rub one corner dent.

Fascinating educational story about how what you might feel is a door closing, usually opens another door, into new relationships.
