Publisher's Summary

Naples, Italy, during four fateful days in the fall of 1943. The only ones left in the bombed-out city are the abandoned children whose only goal is to survive another day. No one could imagine that they would become fearless fighters and the unlikeliest heroes of World War II.

Here are children, some as young as 10-years-old, who take on the German Army, armed with just a handful of guns, unexploded bombs, and their own ingenuity. Children who are determined to defeat their advancing enemy and save their city, or die trying. In its awesome scope and pure listening excitement, Street Boys stands as a stirring tribute to the underdog in us all and a singular addition to the novels of World War II.

What the Critics Say

"While this is a story about children, it is most definitely not a story for children. Although not without moments of humor and romance, Street Boys is exciting, graphic, brutal, grim, and tense." (Library Journal)

    "Great book!"
    Where does Street Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up at the top. I'd love to see this made into a movie.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved all the characters.


    What does Jonathan Marosz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice and accents made it into a movie in my mind.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but simply didn't have the time. I have a job.
