David CopperfieldBook - 2009
From the Publisher: When David Copperfield's widowed mother remarries, David suffers from his stepfather's abuse. At age 8, David is sent away to a harsh school where the principal routinely beats the students. David's circumstances become even worse when he is removed from school and, at age 10, forced to labor from morning to night in a London warehouse. David then decides to take desperate action. He will run away to his great-aunt, who lives in Dover. Having never met her, David doesn't know whether she'll welcome him or reject him. With almost no money, no food, and inadequate clothing, he sets out on a journey that will change his life.
