“Whether the system works or it doesn’t, it didn’t work for me…”
Having just aged out of foster care, eighteen-year-old Jules finds herself homeless and broke. Shortly after her eighteenth birthday, she’s sent packing with very little money and very few personal belongings. However, with her social worker’s help, she finds a place that she can call home—temporarily. But growing up in foster care has left her emotionally scarred, and opening up to people and letting them in is not something she ever wants to do again.
Until she meets Jake. The attraction is almost instant, and he is someone she can definitely see herself falling for. But Jules quickly discovers that everything is not always as it seems, and people are rarely who they appear to be. After learning the truth about Jake, she wants nothing more to do with him. But Jake is captivated by Jules—not just because of her mesmerizing hazel eyes, but because she has unwavering strength despite the unfortunate life she’s had—and he’s not letting go that easily. He’s determined to win her heart, and with each passing day he shreds more of her resolve. With Jake’s help, Jules soon discovers that—even though she has spent most of her life parentless and homeless—there’s no place like home…
Beautiful story. I really liked it.
Jules has grown up in foster care and now, at 18, she finds herself on the street, without a home or money to keep her going.
The system can’t do anything for her, not that she’s been much better before.
Help comes in the form of her social worker who decides to give Jules a place to stay.
This is DeAnna Holland’s first book and let me tell you that she did a great job. The writing style is good and the story flows.
The characters are great and easy to connect with and you’ll find yourself so caught up in them, in the story, that you won’t be able to put it down.
I’m glad I gave No Place Like Home a chance and I’ll make sure to add Deanna’s next book to my TBR list.
