Michelle Kennedy. Michelle Kennedy grew up in a typical middle-class family. Senate page. She had a boyfriend, Tom, whom she adored and soon married; they moved into a starter apartment in the burbs and everything seemed to be falling into place.
But the life Michelle was building suddenly unraveled, and by age twenty-four, she found herself single, homeless, and living out of a car with her three small children. Michelle Kennedy's true story, Without a Net, is about what happens when the American Dream bottoms out. She saved her tips in the glove compartment, and set aside a few quarters every week for truck stop showers for her and the kids. With startling humor and honesty, Kennedy describes the frustration of never having enough money for a security deposit on an apartment--but having too much to qualify for public assistance.
Without A Net is a story of hope. Michelle Kennedy survives on her wits, a little luck, and a lot of courage.
And in the end, she triumphs. Seller Inventory AAC More information about this seller Contact this seller. Seller Inventory BTE Seller Inventory Book Description Penguin Books. Seller Inventory ZZN.
