Reviews

"After reading this book, you'll feel as if you spent a few hours in the shoes of a homeless kid."

-- "YM"
"Gritty and harsh..."

-- "VOYA"
"Strasser powerfully lays out the desperate realities of living on the street."

-- "Denver Post"
"Strasser's vibrant prose plunges young reads into Maybe's hard life, all without the use of profanity. A very welcome addition to the slice-of-life genre in YA literature that may help to change some real lives."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"A powerful and disturbing look at the downward spiral of despair that remains too common for too many teens."--"School Library Journal

"
"A true-to-life novel that should hold strong appeal for teen readers--and help keep them off the streets."--"Bookpage"
