Publisher's summary

Sixteen-year-old Danya Leigh Golde has a life most girls would long for. Her father is a successful stockbroker who lavishes her with anything she desires. She attends a prestigious private school and has a close-knit circle of dependable friends.

When her father is arrested and sent to prison, her good life comes crashing down. It does not take long for Danya to believe the only one she can depend on is herself. When she sets out to live on her own on the streets of Boston, an unlikely friendship develops that, quite literally, saves her life.

An elderly homeless woman who has survived for years on the streets takes her under her wing and teaches "Sunshine" (her street name) how to survive. This audiobook chronicles the lives of several women who have taken every blow life could give them and survived with grace, determination, and most importantly, independence.

Heartwarming Story

This was a heartwarming story with a happy ending. It was fun to listen to Meme, the voice cracked me up. There was a uniqueness to her "Teacher archetype" I really enjoyed. I initially pegged this as a coming of age story, but there is something for everyone.

Insightful look into life on the street

The story shows how easy it is to to experience life changing events. Whatever does happen you can still not let the bad experiences run you life. Always treat others with respect because you don’t always know their life experience. However be weary of the dangers .
