Cannot Wait to Get My Hands On This Book!

Call Me Home: A Novel - Megan Kruse, Elizabeth Gilbert

It's not coming out until spring 2015, but I am posting now to encourage people to be watching for it. Call Me Home is an amazing story of about a troubled family whose members struggle to come to grips with abuse, trust, betrayal, sexual identity, and finding ways to endure through hard times. I have read a very early version of this book by my talented and very special young friend, Megan Kruse. The main thing I remember from that reading was the unforgettable characters. I am beyond excited to see the final version come out and get a copy in my hands to read and share. Keep an eye out for this book! It's a great choice for anyone who likes contemporary realistic fiction. It's written for adults, but mature teens will like it too.
