Bend Me, Shape Me by Debra R. Borys
Told in three distinct voices, Jo, Snow and Snow's Great Uncle Leonard - this was a fantastic follow up to the first 'Street Stories' book, Painted Black. This was a rollercoaster of a book both with regards to the action and emotionally. I enjoyed it and found it hard to put down. The characters were all realistic, and the vivid descriptions of a bleak wintery Chicago made me think of all those poor kids that have nowhere to go. This is a series that can only get better and better, and although the books are linked, they can be read quite happily as standalones. I can't wait for the next one!
