Product description

Can poetry save you when you don’t know where you’ll sleep tonight? You’ll root for homeless Harper in this tough, moving tale. Harper loves to write – and life is giving her lots to write about just now. Daddy upped and walked out, leaving them with nothing but an eviction notice. Now Mama is scrambling to make ends meet, leaving Harper to stay home and take care of her brother. Their whole world has been turned upside down. Meanwhile, the poetry contest is coming up at school. More than anything, Harper wants to get up on that stage and read her poems out loud. But how can she worry about school and poetry when she can’t even count on having a roof over her head tonight?

“The likable characters, their misfortunes and especially their self-reliance will keep readers… enthralled. A poignant debut.” Kirkus Reviews
