Anna is the perfect, rule following student. She has a 4.0 and volunteers all her spare time to fill up her Ivy League applications. Dean isn’t so lucky. His parents are gone, his foster parents abused him and now he’s living on the streets. Each day he’s trying simply to survive. Once they meet, Dean and Anna can’t help but fall for each other. Anna would do anything for Dean, but he isn’t convinced he has what it takes to survive. Anna hopes she can be the one to convince Dean that life is worth fighting for.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Home is Where You Are is an incredibly touching teenage love story. It had me hooked from the beginning. I couldn’t help but feel for Dean. Each of his chapters (even the happier ones) were heartbreaking. At times, I found Anna’s perfection a little annoying but I loved how being with Dean transformed her. I loved how they gave each other hope and truly brought out the best in each other.
I would definitely suggest Home is Where You Are to my YA contemporary romance reading friends. If you have a Kindle, it’s a Kindle Unlimited book and it’s also in the Prime lending library.
