Paper Things
by Jennifer Richard Jacobson




Overview -
"Will engender empathy and understanding of a serious and all-too-real problem. Jacobson's story is poignant but never preachy." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

When forced to choose between staying with her guardian and being with her big brother, Ari chose her big brother. There's just one problem -- Gage didn't actually have a place to live. How can Ari keep up with school, her best friend, and middle-school applications when she's "couch surfing" -- a night here with Gage's friend in a tiny apartment, a night there with Gage's girlfriend and her two roommates -- and even, when necessary, sneaking into a juvenile shelter? Told in an open, authentic voice, this nuanced story of hiding in plain sight may have readers thinking about homelessness in a whole new way.
