about

Self-proclaimed atheist virgin, Mo Perez, has no interest in meeting Mr. Right. She has enough problems trying to cope with her foster care upbringing, her alternative education classes, and constant financial hardships thanks to Marci, her 21-year-old sister and legal guardian who refuses to get a real job. It's a lot for a 16-year-old to handle. But Mo Perez is no ordinary 16-year-old. When her sister skips town with their only source of income, Mo’s situation goes from bad to worse but she is determined to survive on her own. Losing the struggle to make ends meet, Mo is faced with a tough choice: foster care or homelessness. She chooses homelessness. Crafty and creative, will Mo figure out how to keep food in her stomach, clothes on her back, and start a romantic relationship while hiding the fact she has no place to call home.

Editorial Reviews

“Mo’s story isn’t everybody’s, but it’s a powerful insight into how some people end up on the streets, and how difficult it is to get off them again. And she tells it without lecturing, hectoring or preaching. She just tells it like it is. The book is pitched at older teens, but I think it’s an excellent book for anyone who wants a lively, engaging, hard story about a real world topic that seems beyond fixing. It may not solve the issue, but it will give you some insights into the human beings who have to live it.”  —Narrelle M. Harris, author, The Adventure of the Colonial Boy
