Louisiana's Way Home by Kate DiCamillo
Beloved children's author, Kate DiCamillo, first introduced readers to Louisiana Elefante in the pages of Raymie Nightengale. Louisiana's Way Home focuses on the relationship between Lousiana and her grandmother. Louisiana's granny has told her all her life that she was under a curse of sundering and she never had a reason to doubt what her granny said.
At least not until she found herself being taken from Florida and the friends she has come to love. Louisiana learns more than she ever wanted to about sundering. She wonders if she will ever again know what it means to call someplace home.
Louisiana learns a lot about herself and her grandmother and even some about the mystery of her parents. She experiences love, loss and disappointment but also glimmers of kindness, friendship, and a sense of belonging. Louisiana's Way Home is a beautiful tale of a girl who learns that home can be in more than one place and it can be shared with people unrelated by blood.
Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of Louisiana's Way Home from NetGalley for the purpose of review. No other compensation was received.
