I've worked with these youth, including Justin, for 40 plus years. It is accurate and well written. And a powerful story.

If you find this book interesting, you might also want to watch the Academy Award nominated documentary called STREETWISE (Justin Early) is in it.

I highly recommend this book-Mr Early is an excellent, evocative writer. I've seen the Streetwise documentary and am familiar with Seattle. The doc is good, but seemed staged. I was around Seattle in the 80's and the language of Streetchild is authentic to my ears.

This is truly a life changing book. There are so many lessons to learn from this book. I finished this book some time ago and I still can not stop thinking about Justin's story. I literally could not put it down when I was reading it. What an amazing story and what an amazing person. You will not be disappointed.

This book was eye-opening. I never knew the extent that people went through just to survive. My heart goes out to everybody going through this ordeal. This book was well-written, and I applaud the author. No wonder your mother is so proud of you. I am too and I don't even know you!

I was actually looking for a different book when this one caught my eye. I love memoirs, so I took a chance. Justin is someone you will never forget once he takes up residence in your heart. His childhood years on the street are heartbreaking and filled with moments that NO child should ever experience. To be honest, his life even before he was on the streets was wrong for any child. Driven out by a mentally unstable and abusive father, Justin chose the streets over the system which failed him in every way conceivable.

Adults disappoint children all the time, even parents. But there's still this innate belief in children that some adults are compelled to be heroes... preachers, judges, police officers, yet those who prey on children wear the disguises that lure the children in with false hope and when these 'heroes' reveal themselves, it shatters the last bit of trust that children have.

Justin is lucky to be alive. As a small child, he survived events on the streets that would have brought a grown man to his knees. What struck me the most about Justin is that even when he was filled with rage and striking out at anyone and everyone, there was still this kind heart in Justin who fell in love with someone he couldn't have, who watched out for his friends, who befriended those that most of us would cross the street to avoid, and who kept trying over and over again with the parents who didn't deserve his time. Justin survived hell with his heart still intact and that's the most amazing thing of all.

Buy this book. Buy many copies and send them to social service agencies or teachers or churches. There are so many Justins and Robertas still out there and they're invisible to everyone except those who seek to exploit them.

Very emotional and sometimes hard to read because of having trouble seeing through the tears. I very highly recommend this book.
