About the Book
This is a book of extraordinary poetry by homeless youth, 25 years old and under in Chicago.
The poems take a word, a thought, a chance encounter, an image; and create personal stories.
The poems have weight, depth and reveal endless transitions.
These youth are often alone.
They want only what all their peers want: security, respect, opportunity and love.
The images of the youth in the book add an additional layer to the impact
of their poetry.
All proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the H.E.L.L.O program in Chicago.
