This is a truly beautiful book that highlights some of the struggles that homeless people face, the simple everyday things we take for granted....
It shows us that love is blind and it doesn't matter what people look like or what differences they have in life.
The heart wants what the heart wants.
I loved the guys and all the others that helped them on their way to finding each other.
5 out of 5 stars.
