Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-9-- Switzer's book has a slightly different focus than other titles about homelessness because it is a plea for teens considering living ``anyplace but here'' to reconsider. A combination of anecdotal stories, personal experiences, facts, laws pertaining to minors, and a few statistics make for a highly readable yet informative treatment. The author bases her data on over two years of research, primarily with homeless teens whom she was able to convince to talk with her about their plight. Through her book, she tries to offer alternatives that will allow them to remain at home, or at least close to home, whatever their problems. She deals with many myths commonly held by teenagers in an effort to prepare them for, and dissuade them from, a life on the streets. This book, along with Stavsky's The Place I Call Home (Shapolsky, 1990), designed for a slightly older audience, should be available in all libraries that serve young adults. --Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CA
