41/100 Irish Ned the Winnipeg Newsy by Samuel Fea

Irish NedThis really is more of a short story than a novel.  At less than 100 pages it is a quick, but sad, read.  This tragic story of a child living with his grandmother is in turns joyous, inspirational, and devastating.  If you have some time I really recommend reading through this.  This reads almost like a flash fire in a forest, quick, destructive, and leaving you somehow empty and full of rebirth at the end.  If you tend to be overly emotional then give this a skip.  His being a newsy is almost incidental to the plot of the story, just another aspect of his character.  The writing is concise, it would need to be, and you get a lot of depth in this short story.
