How to Steal a Dog

Oh, what a sad book. I just finished reading How to Steal a Dog one of this year’s Literary High Tea books about a homeless girl living with her mom and brother in a car. It makes me stop and rethink what I’ve believed about homeless people. I finished reading it last night and in today’s Seattle  is an article about a homeless girl who’s been in 12 schools in 12 years and is going to Harvard University.  What an inspiring story.
