Coram Boy by Jamila Gavin
Jamila Gavin's Coram Boy tells the story of two eighteenth-century boys from very different backgrounds; one saved from a slave ship and the other an illegitimate son from a wealthy family. Their very different life journeys become inextricably bound-up and linked with story of the Foundling Hospital. Coram Boy was first published in 2000 and was winner of the 2001 Whitbread Children's Book Award. The book was adapted for stage and played for two runs at the National Theatre, London.
