Journalist Elliot immersed herself with a

New York family for years to put together this unmatched work of nonfiction. We are introduced to young Dasani, one of eight siblings, as her family struggles to make their way out of a homeless shelter in Brooklyn. We follow her through her formative years, every day a struggle, cheering her on as she is faced with trauma, distress and heartbreak, in this deeply affecting, poignant, masterful feat of literature.
