Walk Me Home is the most recent book I have read and I have a chance to review from Net Galley. I appreciate the chance of doing this and starting my new adventure of being a book reviewer. My review for this book is that it is more of a young adult book. I liked it but I was confused about the beginning. I did not understand why the characters were leaving or what was going on. Then all of a sudden the beginning is Part 2 of the story. I would have much rather read part 2 as part 1 so that I could get a background of the characters and why Teddy would be the one to finally take care of the girls. I thought Teddy was a friend to Carly and maybe he had a family that would help them. This was not the case it was the opposite he is the boyfriend to their mother. This story does show that the sisters did keep the faith of finding Teddy and how family they stuck together so that they would not be separated. I would give this book overall 3 stars. I hope to read more from the author but I just cannot give it an awesome review. Book Description from Amazon Since their mother’s sudden death, sixteen-year-old Carly and her eleven-year-old sister, Jen, have been walking and hitchhiking across the Southwest trying to find Teddy, the closest thing they have to a family. Carly desperately hopes Teddy will take them in and save them from going into foster care—and forgive them for the lies told by their mother. But when the starving girls get caught stealing food on a Native American reservation, their journey gets put on hold. While the girls work off their debt, Carly becomes determined to travel onward—until Jen confesses a terrible secret that leaves both sisters wondering if they can ever trust again. Set against the backdrop of the American Southwest, Walk Me Home and its resilient heroines will inspire readers and renew their faith in recovery and redemption.
