The Wrong Side of the Tracks
This is a story of the many joys and perils of being a runaway in the 1970s and 80s.
It follows the path of one young girl, her interactions with other runaway children and discusses why it is the children of the street run or are thrown away.
Though this is a fictional tale, I have drawn upon real-life stories, recounted by survivors, to shape it. This narrative assumes a first-person perspective and contains content that may be disturbing.
But this message is too important to ignore and I will not let it remain hidden in the shadows. Let’s get this conversation going and work together to affect positive social change. This is my tale.
