Copyright 1991, published by Covenant House. 115 pages. From the Introduction:
In the time it takes you to read this sentence, a child in America will drop out of school. In the time it takes you to finish this sentence, another child in this country will run away from home. In the time it takes you just to read this page, another teenage girl will have a baby.
Why don't you spend just an hour with me now, and I'll share some amazing--and yes, shocking--stories about who these kids are. Let me show you where these kids come from (the answer may surprise you). How they end up on the street. Why so many of them never make it back. (I should mention that some of these stories are my own--some from our staff who know these kids.)
Just turn this page and step inside the shoes of a homeless kid for sixty minutes. I'll make you this promise--it's a journey you'll remember the rest of your life....
In God's love,
Sister Mary Rose McGeady
