"Fire in the Ashes" by Jonathan Kozol

Fire in the Ashes--25 Years Among The Poorest Children in America by Jonathan

Kozol tells the story of kids growing up homeless in New York City and the trials they and their families go through. Some of the stories are heartbreaking; however, some give you hope. Some have a "wow" factor but they are all interesting. This non-fiction book is well worth your time.

  1. I can't imagine how people will grow up homeless. I'm so grateful that I've been well provided by my parents and grandparents. This i believe an eye-opening read. To apreciate what we have to understand what they (the homeless) is facing. Thanks for sharing. =)
