Teen homelessness is not always connected to poverty and crime. Sometimes there's more to the story. No Known Address follows a teen named Tyler from a privileged family in Victoria, British Columbia, who is kicked out of his home by his abusive dad after being blamed for bringing prescription narcotics to a party. This novel brings to light the serious nature of verbal and emotional abuse and how difficult it is to be understood and access support in such circumstances.
STEVEN BARWIN is a teacher and the author of Trap Jam and Cold Grab in the Lorimer SideStreets series. He has also written several sports novels. Steven lives in Thornhill, Ontario.
