14-year-old Leah loves wilderness survival books. In fact, sometimes she wishes she could escape into the wild. Then she could get away from the body image obsession at school and the bullies who pick on her little brother, Aiden. As long as she could still braid her hair, she could definitely survive without home comforts... and she could explore her passion for stargazing. But alone in the woods one night, Leah's life is transformed. She has the strangest sensation of gliding across the night sky, among millions of dazzling stars. This profound experience sparks a burning question in Leah that no one seems able to answer. Desperate to broaden her horizons, Leah challenges herself to attend an international summer camp. Will the people she meets there, from her first love Sean, to formidable climate activist Kayleigh, help Leah find the answer to her question: what is 'Home'?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Home] touches on everything from etymology to more traditional teen issues of school bullies and body image issues and the ever increasing urgency to act to slow down global warming... This is a book with a lot of positive messages and would be a good introduction into more philosophical thinking for teenagers while helping them to perhaps understand themselves and the world around them better." - LoveReading4Kids "I really enjoyed the wider questions Home provides it's readers...I think this is a great book to read to inspire young minds and to teach important lessons about acceptance, team-work and standing up for what you believe in. A great book for inquisitive readers!" - NetGalley Review "Once in a while a precious book comes along that finds a way to gently hold your hand, tug your heart, and help you understand the strangely curious world you live in. It gives you an outlet to explore important, pertinent questions about who you are and where you belong. It makes your mind wander and meander, and leaves you with a different, more hopeful way of looking at the world around you. Home is THAT precious book. I really wish I had read this book growing up, but well, better late than never." - Goodreads Review
