Publisher's Summary

In Scarborough, a low-income urban neighborhood, three kids struggle to rise above poverty, abuse, and a system that consistently fails them. The adults in their lives either rise to the occasion or fall by the wayside; together, they make up a troubled yet inspired community that refuses to be undone.

feels like coming home

Having grown up in Scarborough, the familiar street namesand bus route numbers remind me of my school days. Having moved to mother Ontario, the Aborigonal culture references remind me of my new home as well. Great story, the illustrations of racism and acceptance were so real, and the victories, both great and small, so bittersweet.

Excellent

Found myself planning walks in that community to landmark those referenced in the story. Very moving story.
