Street Family, by Adrienne Jones, is a novel that deals with the homeless in Los Angeles, California. The author stresses the fact, over and over, that there are people who live out there, on the streets, with absolutely nothing.
Throughout the novel, there are several characters introduced in the first four chapters. Each character has come from a uniquely different background, giving them no other choice but to run from their problems. In the course of their journeys, they all end up meeting one another under one of the busiest interstate bridges in Los Angeles. During the time they spend together, they have to face some of the toughest challenges anyone would ever have to face. They all get their first taste of real homelessness with the constant worry of where their next meal comes from, and the place in which they will sleep away the cold night. The ideal thoughts of making it easy on the streets are soon shot down, by the constant need for food, clothing, and money. Each character eventually finds a sense of security in one another, as time progresses on. The main character, Chancy, dreams about making a family of their own, a "street family", a family that sticks together with love and trust. Once united, they can support one another, and possibly create the opportunity to move off the streets.
After reading this book, I felt that it was a fairly well written novel. The author opened up my eyes about the homeless. Their constant struggle in everyday life has a major impact on whether they will survive or not. Not only does this create a sense of guilt, but it also makes you think about everything we take for granted. Without the necessities that we need, life would be difficult to live.

If you like to read about real life struggles then you would like this book. If your trying to find a good book to catch your attention then I think you need to look somewhere else. I did enjoy the beginning of the, but the ending was predictable.
The only reason I ended up reading this book was because I had a project for class and we were able to read any book of our choosing. I think I mad a mistake picking this book to read and if you're trying to find a book that going to make you want to read it then you making a mistake to. In closing I did not like this book and I barely got finished with it.
In the beginning of the book I was about a trouble some girl that was abandoned by her mother. After going form family to family she finally end up in a detention center where she eventually escape. After getting away she ended up in L.A. trying to live on her own as a street person. Then this boy Joshua ended up like her after running away for an abusive home. A couple more characters come into play and help on the way into this journey of becoming a street person.
