Can’t Get There from Here  by Todd Strasser (Author)


Book Review: 

This book (Can’t Get There from Here) was interesting, mind you, I got this book for only $1, I believe this is the second book by Todd Strasser that I own. I plan to get more books by him because of his books always interesting. Also, the kids I felt like they didn’t want help but the police officers and Anthony wanted to help Maybe, and even Tears got helped at the end (by Anthony). Most of them died towards the beginning, middle and the end of the book. Only four out I believe 6 or 7 teens didn’t die. I felt sorry for the little pup. OG loved that dog, but more so I think OG may have lived. But this book was worth reading.


Book Description:

Her street name is Maybe. She lives with a tribe of homeless teens — runaways and throwaways, kids who have no place to go other than the cold city streets, and no family except for one another. Abused, abandoned, and forgotten, they struggle against the cold, hunger, and constant danger.

With the frigid winds of January comes a new girl: Tears, a twelve-year-old whose mother doesn’t believe Tears’s stepfather abuses her. As the other kids start to disappear — victims of violence, addiction, and exposure — Maybe tries to help Tears get off the streets…if it’s not already too late.
