About the Author

ANN HAYWOOD LEAL volunteers at her local soup kitchen, and this novel grew out of her concern for the very real issue of homelessness in our own back yards. Ann is an elementary school teacher in Waterford, Connecticut.

Reviews

"First-time novelist Leal creates complex characters from various walks of life... The cards are stacked against Harper and her family, but it is inspiring to watch her find success with a pen, paper and a little hope." --Publishers Weekly"Memorable characterizations fill the book with realistic individuals whom readers will root for and celebrate with when their lives finally begin to improve." --School Library Journal"First-time novelist Leal takes a narrative with familiar elements...and elevates it with her characters, who...are sharply and sympathetically drawn. One of the highlights is Harper's poetry, interspersed throughout the book...they are written in a clear and natural way that will speak to readers and make them think." --Booklist"The likable characters, their misfortunes and especially their self-reliance will keep readers...enthralled. A poignant debut." --Kirkus Reviews"From Harper to Winnie Rae Early, the characters are memorable as are the descriptive passages...This book is rich with discussion opportunity for middle grade students" --VOYA
