With a dead mum and an abandoning father, Sid grew up wondering the cobbled streets of New York City looking after himself and fellow newspaper boys.  Through the poorness, hunger and simplistic life, nothing excited him. Until, a war broke out across the nation. In a heartbeat, Sid went from the ranks of conning teenagers to controlling officers and into the pounding war.  Will he regret his choice or love every dangerous moment?

You have amazing detail in the clothing and movements of people. One thing I would like to see more would be describing the setting. I can picture the people perfectly while reading but the sensory is vauge. Wondering word choice in this first chapter! Adding to my library! :) Great job!
