The odds are stacked against Melanie and Trent, who are trying to stay in high school while holding down part-time jobs to survive. They can't live at home, and they can't rely on the social support system. They're going to have to help each other through if they're going to make it.

Previously published as Falling Through the Cracks, a Canadian Children's Book Centre "Our Choice" selection.

"There are students in our schools that this book would ring true with and for that reason, I would recommend it for a high school library."
