This moving story had me intrigued and asking uestions straight away; who are Carly and Jen why are they walking such a long way just the two of them so young What has happened Who is Teddy and why is Carly so determined that he is the one to help themSisters Carly 16 and Jen 12 have set off from New Mexico and are trying to get to Teddy in California They soon become hungry and tired and it becomes increasingly difficult for them to continue and to stay safe and not risk it being discovered that they are on the run alone together; the threat of being taken in by the authorities and potentially separated keeps them walking and reluctant to reveal the reality of their situation to anyone Then the novel takes a step back further in time a few months earlier and we meet Teddy their mother's ex boyfriend and we meet the girls' mother and their recent past slowly reveals itself The sisters have had a difficult unsettled childhood and experienced much disappointment; and now their world has been turned upside down They travel so many miles struggling along together desperate and starving at times and as I read I feared for them but I was also heartened by the kindnesses that they encountered from people too It is primarily Carly whose thoughts we follow and it's a very emotional as well as physical endurance test that she goes through on her journey It is very clear that she has lost her trust in others and lost her belief in her self and her self worth; she has convinced herself that she doesn't matter and that 'everyone likes Jen better' As I read I willed things to change for the better for Carly because she had been so strong I didn't blame her for having lost trust in people because of her past treatment but she needed to take the risk of trusting again; the story illustrates how sometimes we have a new unexpected chance for happiness in life and it is the ability to let go of fear and accept this chance to take the risk of trusting again that we need This was such an important theme running through this story; who can the girls trust and believe in who has their real interests and welfare at heart who isn't all that they seem to be and who cares than they realise I've really enjoyed novels by Catherine Ryan Hyde in the past and I found in this new book the same warm hearted and honest portrayal of people who find themselves facing the challenge of coping with huge difficulties and setbacks in their lives that I have admired before She creates rounded characters and the relationships they share feel very real; I cared about the sisters The author has sensitively and thoughtfully incorporated a little of Native American culture into this story and created two special characters in particular that I would love to meet The sense of place was well conveyed and this setting was important too the intense heat of the desert landscape adding to the struggle as the girls were walking I liked the author’s note at the end of the book that clarified an aspect of the story that I had wondered about whilst reading I think this novel would be really enjoyed by young adult and adult readers I felt this was an engrossing well paced story about being honest with yourself and having to admit to the truth and learning to accept kindness from unexpected places It is about loss loyalty truth courage and the hard decisions people have to make the strength we have to find sometimes even when we are only a young age 45 stars

Walk Me HomeWhile 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 againSet against the backdrop of the American Southwest Walk Me Home and its resilient heroines will inspire readers and renew their faith in recovery and redempti. What makes this book remarkable and a novel I highly recommend is that nothing is over the top—the language is simple but evocative and the bad guys aren’t totally bad and the good folks are also flawed except maybe the character of Alvin whom I adore I immediately remembered what if felt like to be sixteen years old—being both excited by boys yet wary Right away you want to find out why 16 year old Carly and her 12 year old sister Jen are on the run What exactly happened Hyde doesn’t reveal all until the end but she tantalizes you with details about their backstory along the way You root for them and the ending is totally satisfying and in my case tear inducing I love it when an ending makes me cry
