An Angry Bird on Monday
By: Wilfredo Alvelo
About the Book
An Angry Bird on Monday seeks to advocate for the poor and homeless in the US. There are close to 650 thousand homeless people in this country, while it is not as large of an issue in Canada and Mexico. More than forty percent of the US population lives paycheck to paycheck and yet this is the richest nation in the world. More than a million people in US are living without running water and still we talk about violation of human rights in other parts of the world. This is a fictional account of one, just one, homeless person.
