This was a wonderfully written set of real stories about kids who have found themselves homeless. I particularly liked that they didn't taint it against family, or against the kids..just the true way these things come about. Some had terrible situations that brought them there, others made bad choices with good backgrounds. They didn't portray judgement, or happy endings..just stories so we understand how it really is. I saw that one reviewer noted about this book that it was too sad to read...I guess I wanted to say to the reader..."welcome to the real world outside of the bubble many of us live in."
This book has me looking into Covenant house, and how I can contribute for those children who need a place to figure out their lives, for those who will. For those who can.

Reading this book enables you to truly appreciate how some of the kids arrived at Covenant House and makes any judgement evaporate. You understand completely the need for the love, basic provisions and hope supplied by the selfless staff at CH. I highly recommend this book; the read will forever change your perspective of homeless youth.
