Jemmy, once a poor boy living on the streets, now lives in a castle. As the whipping boy, he bears the punishment when Prince Brat misbehaves, for it is forbidden to spank, thrash, or whack the heir to the throne. The two boys have nothing in common and even less reason to like one another. But when they find themselves taken hostage after running away, they are left with no choice but to trust each other.
A rather strange book if I do say so myself. I love historical fiction, but this one isn't even close to the best I have read. It lacked depth or very good story line at all. Quit frankly if your a little kid this may be a decent book to read or get read to you, other then that this sucks.
