What I like most about this book is the challenge in society. I know some don't see it happen but it does. There are still adults, kids who live off the street. I like how she was prejudice about who she was and where she came from. She help because it was what she truly wanted to do. I like the influence she had on him. She got him to see thing in a completely totally different life. He wanted more fir himself. And he could have it if he tired hard enough.The father upset me a little. I know he was proud of who he became. He got off the steers and work hard to be who he was. But he forgot his roots. He forget to give back with what he had. I'm glad that his daughter helped him see the error of his ways.This book is a great read about real life. The struggle with issues of parents, the streets, life of a poor person.
