"Invisible Child" series and coverage

Over the last couple of days, I read and have been discussing this 5-part series "Invisible Child" by Andrea Elliott from The New York Times about an 12-year-old girl Dasani, who lives in a homeless shelter in New York City. Links to the series:

A future rests on a fragile foundation (pt 2)
A Neighborhood’s Profound Divide (pt 3)
