What this book gives is a tale filled with the harsh reality of life on the streets...prostitution, drug use, vagrancy, and violence. It also tells of an amazing love story so inherently wrong, completely illegal, yet so completely acceptable in my eyes!
Finding Home introduces "Mouth" A 17 yr old male prostitute, real name Sean is turning quick tricks to make enough money to get a better life. He has nothing or no one in his life. When Megan, an aspiring reporter takes on the streets to nail that one big story to put her on the map she has no idea how much the people she would meet would affect her...especially Mouth! She cannot tear herself from him even though this is just for a story right?
Needing him to be ok...she makes an offer for safety and comfort...so begins a "relationship" of sorts. An Easy roommate situation, a push and pull of trust. Who is using Who...What is the end game here. There is a strong sexual current of attraction that is festering between a smart 23 yr old woman and an even smarter 17 yr old boy! It is hard to discern at times who is more the adult within this story!
I give Kudos to the author for this work. So many strong emotions as she wrote a love story that was wrong, on every level, and she did it beautifully. The inner turmoil, the shame, the pride, and the ultimate knowledge to do the right thing.
At the end of the day, this read is pretty profound in showing that the past does not define you...that there is hope for a real future...and most importantly that Love can be true and pure even when the circumstances surrounding it are of the darkest nature. For Megan and Sean...
The subject matter may not be for everyone. Megan works for a newspaper and is interested in doing a story about homeless boys living on the street selling themselves in prostitution. She goes in looking for boys who will be willing to tell their stories...what brought them there and what their life is like. Megan meets an attractive 17 year boy/man, "Mouth" who agrees to talk with her. This begins an unlikely friendship that turns romantic half way through the book.
Although the sensuality in this book was off the charts, to me this book almost read like a young adult book. Sean aka "Mouth" seemed way older than his 17 years, and Megan seemed way younger than her 23 years. Because of this, their relationship made sense, but I have to admit being a bit uncomfortable with his "minor status".
I was absolutely glued to this book from page 1 on. I couldn't get enough of it and read in all my spare moments until I had finished it. In some ways tragic, in other ways uplifting, and in every way memorable, this book is definitely one to experience. I for one will re-read this one again...and probably again!
