Homeless Bird Summary. Koly might only be thirteen, but she's ready to get married. Or that's what her mom tells her one day when she announces that Koly's dad is looking for a husband for her. Koly's not surprised by the news—she lives in India and pretty much everyone has an arranged marriage—but she is a little nervous.   Nowhere to Call Home is a collection of gritty, black-and-white photographs and the personal stories of individuals who live on the streets. The haunting beauty of the images will stay with you, long after you turn the last page. All the profits from the sale of this book will go to the Salvation Army Barrie Bayside Mission Centre/5(18).

If home is where the heart is, then Koly's thumper sure must be roaming in Homeless main gal moves around quite a bit in the book—but it isn't not just her physical relocations that make the home a big theme; it's also how Koly feels about each of her houses.   Rags-to-riches stories don't just happen in the movies. Some of the world's richest and most successful people didn't start off that way; they spent nights sleeping on the streets, in their cars.
