Home Is Where You Are Release Day Blitz with Review


 Anna’s life reads like a check list.
Straight A’s (Check)
Editor of the school paper (Check)
Volunteering time at the local soup kitchen (Check)
Ivy League (So close she can taste it)
Falling in love with a homeless boy (Not on the list)

Dean has a plan too. Survive. After being subjected to his foster father’s violent attacks, Dean made the hard choice to leave. Now he lives on the streets doing everything he can to get by, refusing to let people help him. But when he meets Anna, he realizes not everyone is out to hurt him.

Slowly, Anna and Dean let each other in, blending their two worlds into one. But when a series of events brings Dean’s world into perspective, he pushes Anna away. Not willing to accept the line that divides them, Anna sets out to bring Dean back to her. Her determination and faith in their future puts her on the tracks of danger, and he is the only one who can save her.


Home Is Where You Are was an amazingly beautiful, touching story. Its heartfelt, sexy, and inspirational. I LOVED Dean and Anna! These two love birds made the perfect young couple. Counting on each other, and just so emotionally wrapped around one another. I didn't think the synopsis really fit the book. It was somehow....less then what I expected and, honestly, I am glad for it. I loved how this book came together. Its wonderfully written with a compelling storyline and characters that just added more...umph to the story.

Dean is a young man who ran away from an abusive situation. He has been living on the street for some time and he works where he can to make some money while he searches for his long lost sister. I found Dean to be an extremely great character. He is beyond good looking, caring, determined, and so very smart. Anna is the follow-the-rules type of gal. She volunteers all over the place, from Habitat for Humanity, to volunteering at the local soup kitchen as she sends out college applications. That is where she meets Dean and soon she is breaking her own rules to get to know him. 

As Dean and Anna get closer, danger lurks on the streets and its up to Dean to make sure Anna is safe. In the end Dean finds exactly what he was looking for including something he never expected. Home Is Where You Are will make you sigh, cry, and cheer as Anna and Dean become more then just friends to something beautiful and heartfelt. This story went way beyond my imaginings and just came across as one of the best written stories this year. That is why I give this an AMAZING FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS! If you like YA romance that is touching and sexy, then Home Is Where You Are is the perfect book for you.
