Praise
"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."
"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."
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
