Written in a clear style, this book on homelessness provides good, solid information. Case studies, quotations, fact boxes and lots of photographs add interest, and extras, such as a glossary, a list of helpful organisations, an index and a list of further reading provide good resources for project work. Mostly useful for schools, it paints a truthful and often harrowing picture of what it is like to be homeless.
