A rare, personal look at life on the streets, told from the perspective of the children themselves. Through honest, moving, shocking, and often harrowing stories, children describe how they long to be free from the streets, their search for a home, family, and an education. Despite their painful pasts, Toybox, a U.K. charity, is helping street children to have a hopeful future. Author Angela Murray says, "among the hardships of the work, and the setbacks there have been along the way, the children have inspired us with their hope, challenged us with their example, and encouraged us to continue to fight for justice."
Angela Murray visited Guatemala as a young student to work with street children. She now works with the Toybox Charity and is a sought-after speaker on the subject of street children and justice. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to support the work of Toybox with street children in Latin America.
