A Place for Joey by Carol Flynn Harris
Recommended for: Grades 3-4

Joey, an Italian immigrant child in Boston’s North End in 1918, did not want to move to a farm in Watertown — his parent’s dream. He began skipping school and trying to figure out a way to get a job and stay in the city. Little did he know that there would be a complete flip-flop in his relationship with the Irish policeman who kept trying to catch the truant Italian boy.
