Description


From playwright and TV writer Alena Smith comes a hilarious and irreverent illustrated book based on the popular Twitter feed (@tweenhobo), featuring a young spunky girl who sets out in search of freedom, adventure, and her own personal obsession: Justin Bieber tickets.

Get ready to laugh and learn with the littlest hobo. She's only twelve years old, but a "hard twelve." You'll meet her friends: Stumptown Jim (her weatherbeaten BFFL); Tin Cap Earl (who's always down to shoot a junkyard haul video); Toothpick Frank (who learns to love Pinterest); Salt Chunk Annie (a "woman of the night," whatever that means); and Hot Johnny Two-Cakes (who Tween Hobo swears she does NOT have a crush on).

Find out how she survives, thanks in part to strawberry lip gloss. You'll hear her take on major cultural events ("I go off a fiscal cliff every time I go near a Claire's"). And you'll enjoy beautiful hand-rendered illustrations that bring out the beauty in her words--just like how eyeliner makes a hobo's look really pop.

Often snarky and frequently ridiculous, this imaginative journal-like book includes maps, jokes, laughs, doodles, tips, hobo symbols ("House with a triangle on top means PIZZA PARTY ), games, stories, and more. So grab your iPhone and wrap it in a handkerchief, tie it to a stick, and let's roll.
