The story of a plucky, optimistic newsboy, Michael O’Halloran, who has been orphaned from a young age and asks nothing of the world but to “Be Square!” This is a warm and joyous story of how Michael makes life sunnier for those around him, bringing joy to all who know him.

- Found in first six chapters

This story had the potential for receiving a higher rating, but I'm not sure, since I quit listening during the sixth chapter. The use of God's name as a slang word, or a means of presenting a strong verbal expression in the characters' dialogues was offensive to me. It took my attention off the story.
