Teen homelessness is not always connected to poverty and crime. Sometimes there’s more to the story. Tyler comes from a privileged family. When he’s blamed for bringing prescription narcotics to a party, his abusive dad kicks him out of his home. This novel brings to light the serious nature of verbal and emotional abuse and how difficult it is to be understood and access support in such circumstances.
