I was originally skeptical of this book presenting too polished a case of saving a homeless man Similar to Have You Found Her Mr Lopez undergoes a personal development in essentially entering the social work field He is naive shocked etc Then he is intrigued obsessed dedicated But he too crosses into a phase of boundary issues He makes himself and his resources available to Nathaniel without a sense of boundaries or limits He also begins his dedication before understanding the illness that has perpetuated Nathaniel s homelessness To his credit Mr Lopez does a phenomenal amount of research field work and background work perks of having a journalist take this awkward role and he learns uite a bit about the illness the politics the resources and even about boundaries This book does a good job of introducing this experience and familiarizing the public with a mental illness and social condition that are all too missunderstood by the general public It really delves into the complexities of offering help to Nathaniel while maintaining his dignity working with the rhythms of his illness and the social services capacities However again like in Have You Found Her as a non professional he struggles with boundaries Interestingly both Steve Lopez and Janice in the other book reach a point to their own horror where they are so exhausted and frustrated that they just wish someone would take the problem off their hands Although both have caring relationships they realize that a sense of relief would come from their no longer being able to help with Janice when Samantha is in rehab Janice rejoices to have time again she is not allowed to go see Samantha and yet she feels that someone is taking care of it I think it is a sensation that family members may experience when dealing with the severely and persistently mentally ill particularly with substance abuse and homelessness mixed in Families are not allotted the boundaries that protect professionals from being too invested or attached because families are expected to be the resource that is always there And yet families of people like Samantha and Nathaniel endured years and years of turmoil before their loved ones ran off essentially releasing them from responsibility by not being able to find them To see how Steve and Janice felt the intensity of these feelings with people they had only known a year and had no true ties to provides a sliver of insight into how painful it can be for families All of this being said I recommend the book for anyone familiar or not with homelessness or mental illness As a professional it was interesting and I think it must be interesting to any citizen who has walked by a homeless person on the street and wondered about what was going on there
