Tony is poor and does not enjoy school lessons.But except Music.And one day a piano changed his life completely.
I think all man has turning point in their life.But whether man can make it good depends on their effort. This book taught me the wonder of destiny and the importance of effort. ( )

Tony Evans was poor so when he was thirteen,he must left his school and work in a farm. He liked his job and work hard. And one day, while he was cleaning a garage,he found an old piano. When he touched it he felt comfortable and he could play the piano very well in spite of his few times music lesson.

This story is successful story. I like music (but can't play a piano)too,so I understood his feeling. First I couldn't guess relations between farm and piano,so I enjoy this story's line. After reading, I became calm and wont to play a piano too.(but I can't play a piano.) ( )
