Blog Tour: Review of Finding Home by Lauren McKellar

Finding Home by Lauren McKellar
Release Date(Paperback): October 1st 2013
Publisher: Escape Publishing
*Moody, atmospheric, and just a little bit punk, Finding Home takes contemporary YA to a new level of grit...*

When Amy’s mum dies, the last thing she expects is to be kicked off her dad’s music tour all the way to her Aunt Lou in a depressing hole of a seaside town. But it’s okay — Amy learned how to cope with the best, and
soon finds a hard-drinking, party-loving crowd to help ease the pain.

The only solace is her music class, but even there she can’t seem to keep it together, sabotaging her grade and her one chance at a meaningful relationship. It takes a hard truth from her only friend before Amy
realizes that she has to come to terms with her past, before she destroys her future.

Where to purchase Second Kiss

Finding Home is an easy and light read book. If you want to take a break from all the NA romance reads that has been invading the book world then this book is definitely right for you. Though with the drinking subject in Finding Home may have been considered as a NA, I felt that the book was all YA as I get. 

Amy a 17 yr old HS student, has been moved to her Aunt by her Father because of her drinking habit. With the death of her Mom and with an almost absent Dad she find her self living with parties and booze with her new found friends. But a wake up call from her friend was all it needed for her to end all her acts. I liked how the story went from Amy being a lost girl and finding herself at the end. It was all realistic in a clear and to-the-point way. The romance between Amy and Nick was built perfectly and not an insta one. I would also want to know more about some characters example Paula, Coral and Lily & Kyle's story, they really brought spice to the whole story that I find myself liking them.

It was a book that will hooked you until the end. To sum it up Finding Home was a "I do not love it BUT I do not hate it way" kind of story for me. A mediocre one but still a very good and interesting book.
