Preface


This novel touches on the following themes: homelessness, self-mutilation, schizophrenia, suicide, and the occult.

In America more than 1.3 million children are homeless at some time each year.1 This is a sad statistic and one that needs a bit more publicity. 1 in 8 youth under the age of 18 will leave home and become homeless and in need of services.2 12-17 year olds are at more risk of homelessness than are adults.3 Nearly 20,000 youth are emancipated from foster care each year.4
