5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Find a Home is life changing, January 18, 2015

By Karen Ruggiero (New York)

This review is from: Gotta Find a Home: Conversations with Street People (Kindle Edition)

Gotta Find a Home: Conversations with Street People, by Dennis Cardiff, has definitely become a favorite book of mine. It’s so real and intense, it makes you feel like you’re walking along with him. Living in NYC, I am surrounded by homeless people so I can definitely relate to the need of wanting to help them. I love the fact that the author introduces the experiences and lives of these such people in a way that make them come real and feel relatable.

The best part about these documentary stories is the fact that they changed the authors life in a way. It makes you as a reader think about your own problems and realize that they aren’t as bad as you thought they were – people have it a lot worse. Helping the homeless is what helps Dennis cope with his own life while giving back to others.

The homeless are people too – just like the rest of us. Most people mistreat them or simply just walk by them, but Dennis shows up why these actions are so wrong and how we can be better humans by taking the time to help instead of hurt. I was truly touched by this one, and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone.
