This book is real and it's moving! The author's words bring reality to the reader because of our nation's (often cloaked) number of homeless families. It's moving because the author's words introduce us to an unavoidable fact... except for the grace of God, we could all be in the shoes of her main character and his friends.
Along with being a very enjoyable book, a message unfolds throughout the work's pages... `be careful with your attitude about the unfortunate'. There may be more there than meets the eye.
I can't say enough good things about this book. I was really pulling for Chuck as he struggled through his life. I must admit that I was a little suprised by the ending. Not disappointed, though. Just surprised.
I highly recommend this book. Buy it. Read it. No...experience it.
Honestly, it sat on my shelf for quite a while until one dull, rainy Sunday afternoon. I had nothing better to do, so I figured I'd read a couple chapters. After those couple chapters I was still turning pages . . . straight through to the end.
I was thoroughly amazed at Carley's development of her main character and his life, where he came from, his relationships, his potential and his reasons for being homeless. Carley weaves the story from the present to the past and back. You meet his family, his baseball buddies, his friends, and most importantly his sister with whom he has a special connection that keeps him going when times are really difficult.
When I closed the book, slowly, I had been touched by Chuck and his hardships, his strength of character, and most especially by his choices.
This is a great story of the trials of modern times. Read it!
