A Picture Book by

Early in the twentieth century, ten-year-old Ben and his family live in the poorest part of their city with other Jewish immigrants. There is never enough money to make ends meet, so Ben, determined to do his part, lands a job delivering hat linings to a hat factory after school. He sets out on his boss's bicycle feeling strong and free, and has a grand time until, on his way up Hill Street, he gets a harsh comeuppance, one that hurts his body and threatens to destroy his dreams as well.

Based on the experiences of the author's father and illustrated in Emily Arnold McCully's signature style, this book celebrates a boy who nearly loses hope, but then learns that the future shines bright and full of second chances.
