Broken Windows, Broken Lives (by Adrian Plass)

'Broken Windows, Broken Lives' is a short novel by Adrian Plass.

This is the story of a young man who wants to help maladjusted children. He goes to work in a home for boys, and very slowly is accepted by them, while learning a lot about himself at the same time.

There are many moving moments; it's very well-written (based, in part, on the author's real-life experiences) and I would highly recommend it.

(You can also read my slightly longer and more recent review of 'Broken Windows, Broken Lives, written after another re-read)
