There is a consequence to the current lack of adequate affordable housing, one that no one is talking about: its effect on kids. Bestselling author Blue Balliett's new mystery, Hold Fast, follows the nightmarish fall of one family from independent housing to life in a Chicago shelter. This story, set in the real world, offers hope, dreams, Langston Hughes' poetry, and one eleven-year-old's solution to ending homelessness for all families.
