This was an absolutely amazing book! It shows you what really happens to some people, and what they go through, because you don't know how lucky you are to have a home. It was the best book I've ever read, (So far) and I recommend it to anyone who loves a truly outstanding story.

Almost Home is a book that has a great cover, but the book is pretty sad. I mean, it's about a girl who get kicked out of her own house, and then after living on the streets for a while, her mom breaks down. In general, I honestly didn't really like it.

This book just made me sad. A girl gets evicted from her house and is forced to live on the Chicago streets. It really didn't have much plot and her mother's "breakdown" didn't really make much sense. I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.

I bought this book at Barnes and Nobles not knowing it was at the library. I loved the book and wanted to tell others so I looked it up on here and found it on here so I can actually tell you that: THIS BOOK IS SOOO AMZING!!! For ages 8 & up. LOVED IT and I want you to at least read it to see if you like it or not, but, I'm sure you will love this book just like I do! <3

I love this book. It's one of my very favorites. It's a great touching book for early teens.

This is such a GREAT book! Very touching. It made me appreciate the things we always take for granted. Almost Home is one of the most meaningful books I have ever read, and it has a great moral. I definitely recommend reading this!!!
