Any other comments?
As a social worker and therapist, I have dealt with many people caught in lifestyles that were self-destructive. This book addresses some of the reasons why someone may end up living on the street and how the street lifestyle can be dangerous but also provide a sense of community.
Thanks for your recommendation, Nikki. You’ve intrigued me enough to order my own copy!
