I've never seen a fiction book about a homeless kid. I've read nonfiction books, my favorite being the Irresistible Revolution which I love insanely a lot. So a fiction book about a homeless kid appealed to me (am I weird?). I was not disappointed. The writing was awesome, it held me and painted the vivid images in my mind. I liked the characters a lot and the plot... it had me reading into the night and I could. not. put it down. I cared so much and hoped so much, I loved every moment.
I also love the feeling of awareness it gave me. I am already really aware of the homeless, because of my parents, but this just heightens that. It's a story to remember, full of reality and things everyone *needs* to remember.
The epilogue was more like an author' note but I loved how the Grapes of Wrath went through the book and the conclusion was awesome.
the ending... so. bittersweet. wow. I wasn't crazy into the couple sports descriptions, but I think they're good because it fits Dan, the main character, and it attracts boys who like sports.
