The boxcar-living, Justin Bieber-loving, darkly funny, 12-year-old drifter @tweenhobo wrote a delightful book, Tween Hobo: Off The Rails, in (ahem) "collaboration" with playwright Alena Smith and featuring wonderful illustrations by my hypertalented designer pal Kate Harmer! To give you a sense of Tween Hobo's take on the world, here's a taste of her Tweets:
• "Just FYI, Thomas the Tank Engine presents a pretty sugar-coated view of railroad life"
• "Old hobos speak of a time when Halloween costumes weren't based on memes"
• "I'm only twelve, but I'm a hard twelve. "
• "Today I saw Mount Rushmore. It was all boys."
