Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year

“Exquisitely written, Something Like Home touched my heart deeply. This beautiful story is destined to become a classic.” —Holly Goldberg Sloan, New York Times bestselling author of Counting by 7s
“A sparkling gem of a book that will spring open the deepest places in your heart. I loved it, start to finish!” —Rebecca Balcárcel, Pura Belpré Honor-winning author of The Other Half of Happy

★ ”Arango’s writing is a joy to read, combining strong storytelling, compelling characters, and rich language….Beautifully executed.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ ”Abundant bird facts—which Laura learned on daily walks with her father—add sensitive insight into Laura’s interpretation of family and loyalty.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ ”Arango’s writing is intimate and heartbreaking, tackling such hefty issues as cultural identity, addiction, the pain of displacement and the anxiety it causes, and the adulation and rationalization that a child in pain can offer to adults they love.” The Horn Book, starred review

★ “Extraordinarily honest and sensitive, this novel in verse tactfully and gracefully deals with foster and kinship care and some of the many emotions involved.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“This story provides honest insight into the difficult subject matter of foster care, addiction, and finding identity.”The Bulletin

“Arango’s follow-up to her Newbery Honor debut is a triumph for readers who need the hug without having to ask for it.” —Booklist
