From the start, Baslim treated him with a humanity and kindness he could scarcely believe, and Thorby soon came to love and revere the wise old man and call him father. In turn, Baslim taught him much more than the art of being a successful beggar: he taught him the value of the human soul, a learning rare in the underworld of Jubulpore and the Nine Worlds. When one day 'Pop' Baslim was 'shortened', Thorby follows Pop's precise instructions to board the Free Trader starship Sisu and finds himself once again adapting to a new life. Adopted into the Family he begins roaming the nine worlds and the Hegemony where Baslim's education would prove invaluable in his quest for his true identity and purposeHide synopsis

I bought this book for my grandson, 10 years old, and planned to read it first so I could answer questions. The book turned out too difficult for a 4th grader, but seems wonderful for a young high school student.
