From award-winning author Cecilia Galante comes a story about grieving hearts, broken families, and how speaking out can save them both.
Saying goodbye is never easy.
Everything changed after Pippa and Jack's mother died last spring. Pippa stopped speaking, Jack started picking fights, and their father's struggling business began to fail. Now, with school starting again, Pippa doesn't know how she'll manage a class presentation on Spartan warriors when she can't even find the words to tell her father that she wishes he were home more. And Jack is struggling to understand his feelings for the mysterious girl next door.
But when Jack and Pippa realize that their dad is getting so desperate for cash to keep the family afloat that he might be going to extreme and illegal lengths to make ends meet, they are faced with the biggest decision of their lives. How far are they willing to go to keep their family together?
Stealing Our Way Home is a poignant, deeply affecting novel about falling apart, finding your voice, and the power of letting go.
