1.0 out of 5 stars Endlessly going nowhere, January 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wish I had put this book down when I began to realize that it was going nowhere. I just did not get the intent of this boring read. It never did get to anywhere in my opinion. I have read many coming of age stories and memoirs that were far more memorable than this read. Save your money and try Life is so Good, The Invisible Wall or perhaps Breaking Night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight forward and compelling, January 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An honest and compelling read on how too many children are forced to grow up......I wish there had been more people in Rich's life who had reached out to help him....Where were the counselors in his school and all of his teachers? How is it that so few people could not "see" this child's need for clothing, food and the basic necessities of life? As a society we need to be more accountable to young people who grow up every day in these types of situations. Rich's life story reminds me of my own responsibility to look for opportunities to help those less fortunate, especially children. I wish you all the best Rich.....and am so happy for you that you survived and prospered despite what you endured. Very honest and great read.....

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I anticipated, January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had read about Liz on the internet and almost did not purchase this book, believing that her story was similar to many of the young homeless people growing up on the streets of our cities. I am so glad that I read her life's story. It was inspirational to me in so many ways. I worked as a counselor myself in an alternative high school setting.....So much of Liz's story could have been written by the students with whom I came to know and love in my own work. I seldom write reviews but I felt compelled to after reading Liz's book....It was an amazing read. I wish you Liz, all the best that life has to hold.
