Product Description

Leo is 11 years old and lives in San Francisco where he works as a newspaper boy. He loves his job and the money that he earns, but his most prize possession is his grandfather's gold nugget. Worth more than anything he could earn at the newspaper stand, he will never sell it. . . until a group of boys beats him up and steals it. Leo and his friend Morris are determined to get the gold back, but before they can do anything, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake happens. With everything around him destroyed or burning, will he survive this devastating disaster? This fictionalized account is based on real events.

Publisher's Description

The terrifying details of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake jump off the page!

Ten-year-old Leo loves being a newsboy in San Francisco -- not only does he get to make some money to help his family, he's free to explore the amazing, hilly city as it changes and grows with the new century. Horse-drawn carriages share the streets with shiny new automobiles, new businesses and families move in every day from everywhere, and anything seems possible.

But early one spring morning, everything changes. Leo's world is shaken -- literally -- and he finds himself stranded in the middle of San Francisco as it crumbles and burns to the ground. Does Leo have what it takes to survive this devastating disaster?

The I SURVIVED series continues with another thrilling story of a boy caught in one of history's most terrifying disasters!
