To say the truth Can’t get there from here is a sad but awesome book. Its about a girl named “Maybe”, well that’s her street name. she lives on the street with a group of kids whose names are Maggot, rainbow, 2moro, country club, og, and tears. They survive through many different ways living in old buildings eating from fast food garbage’s, making money through begging and being a prostitute. But one after another they start to die. One from sickness, another from drugs. from being drowned and strangled or even from the cold. Tears goes home to her grandparents house. And Maybe starts a new life with the help of a youth house. Now I know this books sounds horrible but it isn’t. it shows that not everybody has the life we do and that life is very precious.
