Timothy has never had a job before – or no work that he’s kept for more than a day. But when Timothy and Charlie have to collect money from a local thug, things don’t exactly go according to plan…

A short novel depicting the adventures of new acquaintances Timothy and Charlie. Moderately pace keeping me engaged throughout, this is a novel with a little bit of heart. However, just as you get to know the characters, the story ends, one of the downfalls of a quick read.

A touching story of friendship and adventure, leading to drama and unexpected consequences!
