"Ragged Dick" by Horatio Alger Jr.
This story takes place in New York at the start of the 1900s. The main character is a bootblack called Dick Hunter who, though honest, squanders away his earnings in every possible way. In the story he meets a richer boy who manages to convince Dick to start saving his money and be "spectable". So Dick reforms and starts to get an education. Dick tries to find a job in a store and one day takes a ride on a ferry. While he is on the ferry a boy falls off and Dick's next action changes his own future forever.
Two of our boys absolutely loved this story and listened to it over and over again. All of our children have enjoyed reading Horatio Alger books and we have had to forcibly move them onto other authors.
