Reach Incorporated: Books by Teens

StoryMeet Princess McKenzie as she shows you around her castle, the Fort Hill Homeless Shelter. McKenzie shows the power of imagination in overcoming difficult circumstances. Missing her mom, Princess McKenzie leaves the shelter in search of the queen and finds something far more important.

Story Behind the Story: In this bold and imaginative story, these teen authors address a challenge they know some of their readers know personally, but that we rarely see represented in children's literature: living in a homeless shelter. They wanted to portray the shelter as a safe and helpful place where families can rebuild and get the support they need, while also exploring the complex relationship issues that can be caused by financial struggle.
