"Bishop's skillful use of language and style, though subtle and unobtrusive, captured the very essence of being homeless, of living in poverty, devoid of hope. I was inside the story from beginning to end. I became informed without being preached at. I was brought inside the lives of those who are disenfranchised and lost, and I witnessed the human will to survive." -- Wendi Stewart, judge for the 2016 H.R. (Bill) Percy Novel Prize

This book explores the inner lives of homeless people, who often feel invisible. It explores their perceptions of how they came to be where they are. The book also details how a young woman, after meeting many of these people, changes her perceptions. Although she originally felt superior to homeless people, she learned that it could happen in her own family. Although names and places are fiction, the narratives are based on stories told to volunteers at shelters and on the street by men and women, some of whom were veterans, with no place to go. The largest homeless group consists of children. We hear stories of heroism and cowardice, laziness and ambition, spouse abuse and child abuse and stories of adults sacrificing everything to save a child. The homeless are not homogenous. Each story is different and each individual is unique.

Meredita and her family's life story represents that of the many families the author has known at Quirino Aveneu Bridge and in other places in Manila. Affected by their untiring, endless attempts to get out of poverty or deal with it to survive, the author tried to capture all these details from what Mercedita's family chose to share over the years. The interaction was based on a relationship shaped by events an NGO volunteer organized in the community, like a street library and monthly fora. This book takes the position that the poorest are first and foremost human beings, essential partners in the fight against poverty more than they are problems to be solved.
