Stone Cold is a Carnegie Medal-winning thriller by Robert Swindells. It is one of The Originals from Penguin - iconic, outspoken, first.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Changes the Way You Look at the Street and this book does just that! I first read this book in grade 6 and it's the only book that I have had the will power to read again! It was well written with a good plot for young adults. You truly understand how hard it is to live on the streets and have more sympathy for the homeless in the end. A good read.
