Heart wrenching look at life on the street for two young men. The author brought to life the details of being homeless. Although depressing, there was a bit of hope as they started to find ways to get back on their feet. While I enjoyed the author’s voice, I struggled a little with this story. I felt it should have been longer or focused on fewer issues. I wanted to know more about both of the characters, their backgrounds, and how they planned on moving forward together. I could easily see this turned into a full novel. Includes sex with a minor and drug use.
I got tired of my dad using me as a punching bag, so I packed some clothes and left our apartment one day while he was at work. Life is tough, but I learned that living on the streets is even tougher.
When I thought things couldn’t get much worse, Erik suddenly appeared before me, just like an angel. Is this a dream or are the drugs making me hallucinate? What is he running from? Why won’t he tell me about his past? Can I trust him?

Nice review Kris 🙂
Thank you Kathy! It’s hard to imagine being homeless, and this story did a great job showing some of the harsh realities of it.
