The author of the powerful "Give a Boy a Gun" again focuses on an important social issue as he tells a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching story of young lives lost to the streets, and of a society that has forgotten how to care.
From the Publisher:
Her street name is Maybe. She lives with a tribe of homeless teens--runaways and throaways, kids who have no place to go other than the cold city streets, and no family except for one another. Abused, abandoned, and forgotten, they struggle against the cold, hunger, and constant danger.

With the frigid winds of January comes a new girl: Tears, a twelve-year-old whose mother doesn't believe Tears's stepfather abuses her. As the other kids start to disappear--victims of violence, addiction, and exposure--Maybe tries to help Tears get off the streets...if it's not already too late.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Strasser's vibrant prose plunges young readers into Maybe's hard life, all without the use of profanity. A very welcome addition to the slice-of-life genre in YA literature that may help to change some real lives." 02/15/2004

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This is an insightful and though-provoking examination of otherness, one that challenges readers to consider their own situations as well as to remember the situation of those out in the cold." - Hope Morrison July/August 2004
