“Katherine Seligman has created a completely immersive and gripping depiction of modern-day homelessness. Spending her days on the streets and her nights in Golden Gate Park, Maddy Donaldo is most comfortable by herself or with her small group of friends. When she stumbles onto a murder scene, however, she's forced to expand her circle to include police, the victim's family, and even the murderer himself. The story itself feels raw and authentic, deftly handling a reality that for most people exists outside of what we can realistically imagine. At the same time, Maddy's search for family, home, and security is deeply relatable for any young person just starting out in adulthood, regardless of the circumstances. Through both vivid external details and the thoughtful inner life of the main character, this book changed the way I see my own streets and the people who walk through them.”Melissa Sagendorph, Harvard Book Store
