    They were left behind out of love, newborn twin boys who already possess that special bond only a twin can understand The cruelty of Fate separated them, one to grow up in the lap of a safe and loving environment an ocean away from his brother, left behind to survive the brutality of the corrupt Brazilian system that forces young children into the streets as fodder for the ugliest side of life, a side where even the law represents a monster of epic proportions.Jose was taken to England, raised for twelve years and has now journeyed to Brazil with his parents and into a world of hidden truths ad a revelation that will finally complete his soul.Pedro was a ward of the state until he became too much of a burden and forced to live on the streets, scrounging for scraps, becoming a thief in order to survive, all while being the puppet of a vile and corrupt police system It was a matter of circumstance and an act of Fate that Jose would decide to find the brother he never knew Their broken bond would be repaired, but not until Pedro and Jose trade places and they each understand what could hav...

    Really I must thank the author Maria Gibbs for allowing me the pleasure of reading this as an ARC before being fully edited I now however have through a small glitch with the printed version, bought myself a copy of the finished paperback before the official release date of Saturday 1st April 2017I absolutely LOVE this book it packs a punch right from the start with us learning the terrible fate that befalls new born twins sadly abandoned at birth As if fate has not been cruel enough already, we soon discover that she has worse things in store for the boys They are separated, one being adopted and taken off to England the other left in Brasil to become a Street Child and what a terrible life this child has.The story is very carefully crafted, told through several different points of view There are the harrowing events that lead up to the biological parents Leandro Carolina having to abandon the babies, and how they barely survive living without them hoping and dreaming that one day soon they will all be re united.There is the underlying story of Christina Fernando the couple who ado...

    Leandro and Carolina have just had twins but fate has dealt them an ugly hand and they are forced to leave their children in the hospital as it is too dangerous for them to keep them Jose is adopted by an English couple, Fernando and Christina, while Pedro is left in an orphanage and abandoned.When Fernando and Christina bring Jose back to Brasil 12 years later will they be able to find his twin, Pedro Will the past be explained and how does the past link up to the present circumstances revolving around everyone I enjoyed this book and how everything came together in totally different ways than what you thought was going to happen There were definitely a few things that I was not expecting and a couple of times I had to go over in my mind the different characters as I was confused with the names.It was interesting to see the reasons that Jose created in his mind about why they were back in Brasil looking for his twin and it made me sad to see what Jose thought I really liked both Pedro and Jose and both have had their respective struggles I think one thing that shocked me a little was remembering that they were only 12 years old in the book as many times I felt like they were so much older than that with everythin...

    Give me a book that can make me feel something Let me fall in love, rage against injustice, weep for what is lost The Boy from the Streets delivered it all.At first blush, it seems to be a modern take on The Prince and the Pauper Without giving away too much of the plot, Pedro and Jose are separated at birth One boy is adopted by wealthy parents while the other is discarded like so much trash Years later, they re reunited, and that s about where the similarities end with, The Prince and the Pauper Every time I thought I had this book figured out, it twisted I lost sleep reading well into the night I picked it up again when I woke I spent an hour choking back tears while my husband looked at me as if I d lost my mind My poor dog brought me his favorite toy to comfort me Still, I continued reading to the bittersweet ending.I absolutely loved it I d recommend this book to anyone who loves a w...

    Two innocent brothers are brought up in the different worlds of upper class England, and the slums of Brasil Bigger plots arise when the boys finally find each other, and it is a challenge to get out alive.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.I enjoyed this, it s a prince and pauper tale, set mainly in 1990 s Brasil It doesn t seem so long ago, and it s hard to believe how callous the country is to its abandoned children.The real strength of this book is how it takes you on a tour of the life of the pivetinhos street children It balances perfectly the brutality of the abuse, danger and sense of it all being inescapable but never overwhelms the rest of the story wth it.There are several mysteries playing out, concerning young Jose and Pedro Mainly keeping you guessing about the manner of Jose s illness, and whether his unloving English father will go through with his plan to swap him for a stronger model , correcting the mistake that his loving mamae made years ago.Then there is the mystery of their birth parents of why they had to flee Brasil, and what will happen if they are reunited Will the English couple who have been devoted to Jose for all of his life, lose him to people that are technically strangers The not so good.I really wasn t keen on The Exiles sections Leandro and Christina have escaped to England, but are...

    While the premise of the story was heartbreaking, I felt the actual novel did not deliver I like reading a bit about the author before starting a book, so I was happy for Ms Gibbs that she was extending herself outside her normal genre of romance Unfortunately, this book reads like a 7th grade wannabe romance author The dialogue and writing were choppy and did not lend itself to cha...
