Praise for In the Hole

Check out Ben’s breakout YA novel, depicting a child’s experience of homelessness.


“Ben Levin has written an important book that opens a critical window into homelessness for young readers.”

– Maria Foscarinis Esq.
Founder of National Homelessness Law Center and Lecturer in Law at Columbia

“This book should be in the hands of all upper elementary school and middle school students.”

– Diane C. O’Keeffe
Retired Principal of the Beechwood Knoll School, Retired Fifth Grade Teacher


“Walking the marathon of homelessness in David’s worn-down basketball shoes truly teaches the reader the importance of unwavering trust in the face of adversity. You won’t want to put the book down, and when you finally do – you’ll want to make a difference for the less fortunate.”

– Laurence Koodin
High School Senior, Suffern, NY
