The Girl's Guide to Homelessness - Brianna Karp I appreciated her message that anyone can find themselves homeless due to circumstances beyond their control and that losing their house does not mean they are lazy or incompetent or leaching off social welfare programs. I bumped Brianna down a star because the romantic storyline that dominates the last half of her memoir got a little too over the top. I kept rolling my eyes and wondering how much more this poor girl was going to put herself through for the sake of this man she barely knew.
