The publishers did not want the word ‘homeless’ in the title
"When we first published the book, Homeless: The Untold Story of a Mother’s Struggle in Crazy Rich Singapore, so many people asked me if I was responsible for the title. And the answer is yes! Initially, my publishers had reservations about using the word ‘homeless’ in the title, but I was adamant and I wanted the word as the title and at the front of the book. It is my personal experience and writing this book means so much to me and I wanted to keep the narrative my own."
