Strasser, Todd. Can't get there from here

Strasser, Todd. Can't get there from here. Simon & Schuster, 2004 [0-689-84169-8]
This is the gritty tale of a tribe of teenagers living on the streets of New York. The reader experiences their rough life, what they have to do to survive, and their feelings of hopelessness. To survive, the kids learn not to trust adults...even those who may be trying to help them. When someone tries to help them, the kid's response is "what do you get out of it?" This 198 page book is a harsh tale of life on the streets and the limited possibilities of leaving that life.
