I have to admit that I was afraid to start this book. I knew that it would pull me out of my comfort zone and challenge me in ways that I wasn't sure I was ready for.
It did not disappoint.
Through Mike and Sam's journey I was allowed into a world in which I do not live, and yet I walk by on the streets on a fairly regular basis. Growing up in a small town where homelessness was not a visible part of our community, this book has shaken me deep in my soul.
In my new community, homelessness slaps you across the face and wakes you up to a reality that there is a whole other world in which most of us will never have to experience.

Even if you are not a believer or a person of faith, this book will challenge you to take a hard look at your life. It's overall question is: Are you willing to step outside of yourself and extend a hand to the broken?
