Book Overview

In cities across North America, teenage runaways are struggling to stay alive. Some don't make it to adulthood. Some do, but their lives rarely rise above the despair that brought them to the streets in the first place. A few manage to beat the street, to get their lives back on track. In this disturbing account Marlene Webber draws on extensive interviews with these kids to explore the realities of street life, its attraction, and its consequences.

Street Kids: Is there hope?

This book was amazing! I loved the real life examples and just how truthful it really was. Street Kids shows how hard it is to be a teen on the streets and how it isn't just 'get up and live life on the streets'. Life on the streets is not easy; food is hard to come by, drugs are hard to give up and sex is almost the only to make some kind of income. There's pressure; there's danger there's dismal hope for a future and this book lets people know that. As a reader, I became more aware of just how serious the problem with Canada's runaways is.... well done Marlene Webber!
