Without a Net: Middle Class and Homeless (With Kids) in America

“[Kennedy’s] sense of humor, ingenuity, and refreshing refusal to blame others for her mistakes won me over, and I quickly found myself rooting for her to succeed.” —Elle Magazine

“A beautiful, heartfelt, and wonderful book.” —Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina

“…the heart of this account is the author’s love for her children and her determination to keep her family safe, sound, and together. Frightening yet heartening—perfect movie material.” – Kirkus Reviews

From Year of the Dog:“To say that dogs saved my life may sound trite to some. It may sound like I am overstating to others – or being dramatic. But if not for the dream of dogs, the company of dogs, the help of dogs, the beauty of the dogs, I am sure I would be here today, but I am not sure I would be alive.”
