About The Book
For more than four years, journalist Alexia Lewnes reported on the daily lives of five homeless young people in New York City, meeting them day and night on street corners and subways, in parks, hospitals, and jail cells. These kids get pneumonia, overdose on heroin, are arrested, get beaten up, and are chased by people they owe money to. Some trade sex for food, drugs, shelter, companionship.
In Misplaced, kids who are growing up as outcasts, speak honestly about their lives — their love for parents who beat them, their desire for relationships to ease their loneliness, their dreams of living in a house and having a dog, their fear of dying alone.
Lewnes incorporates the perspectives of family members, social service providers, and friends to show how these kids’ lives spiraled out of control. We are reminded that these kids don’t suddenly “grow up” into responsible adults. What happens to them affects us all.
