Book Review #69- No place by Todd Strasser

This book was about homeless people and how one of the popular guys named Dan becomes one. It seems like Dan has it all. He’s a baseball star who hangs with the popular crowd and dates the hottest girl in school. Then his family loses their home.

Forced to move into the town’s Tent City, Dan feels his world shifting. His friends try to pretend that everything’s cool, but they’re not the ones living among the homeless. As Dan struggles to adjust to his new life, he gets involved with the people who are fighting for better conditions and services for the residents of Tent City. But someone wants Tent City gone, and will stop at nothing until it’s destroyed… I don’t like the fact that it’s based on the popular guy with the popular girlfriend and is an athlete.
