    • This book sounds like a really good book, it sounds like a very inspirational book that could probably lead many to do great things. I might have to read this book just to feel this type of inspiration, to work hard to achieve the “impossible.”

  • Dear Yuliana, I also believe that they might grow apart but one way or another stay in touch.

    Monce commented on the post, Homelessness!

    Dear Breanna,
    I am intrigued by your post because it states what people see, and then it goes back into what reality really is for the homeless and why they are there. I am now looking forward to reading a book similar to this situation.
