Product Details


“A fierce main character, an enthralling mystery, and a cause to root for. Like Home is a stirring coming-of-age story set in the midst of gentrification and a community on edge.” —Namina Forna, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Ones
“A phenomenal coming-of-age story that centers on Black girlhood, the not-so-subtle violence of gentrification, and friendship. Louisa Onomé presents us with a compelling and beautifully written tale about love and loss.” —Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé, author of Ace of Spades
Brimming with charm and heart, Like Home is a powerful commentary on gentrification, perfect for anyone who’s ever loved a place so much it felt like family.” —Roseanne A. Brown, New York Times and Indie bestselling author of A Song of Wraiths and Ruin

★ “The effortless diversity of the cast is a model for fiction. Light and serious, playful and real, this is a debut not to be missed.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ “A touching coming-of-age story, highly recommended for audiences looking for titles like Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give and Nic Stone’s Dear Martin. A must-have.” —SLJ, starred review

“Louisa Onome’s Like Home is a poignant debut filled with exquisite prose, a dash of mystery, and most importantly, a whole lot of heart. You’ll be thinking about Nelo and her friends long after the last page, and you’ll fall so in love with Ginger East that you’ll want to step right into the neighborhood. I highly recommend this read!” —June Hur, author of The Silence of Bones

Evocative and gratifyingly immersive, Like Home brings the idea of community to brilliant life. With expertly-drawn characters and a setting so alive it becomes another character we root for, Louisa Onome has written a celebration of the human capacity to find and re-find home.” —S.K. Ali, author of Saints and Misfits
“This moment needs this book—a stirring, vivid, achingly true love song to activism, friendship, culture, neighborhood, and community. Louisa Onomé is a bright new star in YA.” —Jeff Zentner, Morris Award–winning author of The Serpent King and Goodbye Days

“Chinelo’s unwavering devotion and hope for her hometown drive this debut; Onomé delves into the meaning of home and the negative impacts of redevelopment.” —Publishers Weekly
