I loved this book! It was so well written with three lives coming together in the most bizarre way. A violinist alone and enslaved in the cities hardest neighborhoods, a girl with a very sick father and the weight of the world on her shoulders to make the money for her family to live on and a clockwork apprentice with one goal.
The story gets better and better till finally their paths cross. Then they have to eventually depend on each other to survive. Sometimes they don't make the best choices but they really feel bad and try to make them right and in the end it all does seem to work out.
