Book Description
Fourteen-year-old Davie and his best friend, Geordie, are altar boys at their local Catholic Church. They're full of mischief, but that all changes when Stephen Rose comes to town. Father O'Mahoney thinks it would be a good idea for Davie and Geordie to befriend him-maybe some of their good nature will rub off on this unhappy soul. But it's Stephen who sees something special in Davie.
