The author pulls you into her experiences with an honesty that is riveting.

READ THIS BOOK!" -Alicia L.
"This book was able to shift my perspective on homelessness in a way that really surprised me. For the first time I truly understood that the choice to be on the streets for some is more about autonomy, the chance to live life on their own terms, even if it is dangerous and frightening. I felt every up and every down with the author in this book. I finished the book inspired to be better- to do something for the people who need it the most." - Faith K.
