Horn Book
After choosing life on her own over staying with her parents, Melanie is grateful to move in with Trent and keep off the streets. But with all they face--hunger, secrets, a shifty employer, dangerous neighbors--can Melanie find a way to survive? Melanie's tough-as-nails narration is convincing; her moments of epiphany--why she shouldn't get pregnant, how to eat on a budget--less so.
