Reviews

"The Way Back Home is a heartfelt, riveting novel from a master of his craft" * Quill and Quire * "I love this book - a riveting page-turner full of likeable, flawed, believable people. It's beautiful, heartbreaking, yet wonderfully funny. Stratton writes some of the wittiest dialogue in YA fiction today." -- Susin Nielsen "The Way Back Home is raw, funny, brutal and profoundly humane. It broke my heart and then healed it again" -- Susan Juby "Terrific. I read it in one big gulp. Does Stratton have an ear for dialogue or what? His splendid new novel involves a journey from a painful past into something like, well, utter grace. Like all of Stratton's work, this is a read that makes us recognise the pilgrimages we are all on, and cheer at the thought that they might, they really might, be successful." * Gary D Schmidt * "An emotional story of survival, loss, family and memory... a thought-provoking book that is both shocking and funny in equal measure" * Carousel * "The novel discusses many important topics such as bullying, mental health and the loss of a loved one. Zoe's experiences are certain to resonate with young teenagers, making it an honest and relatable read" * INIS * "An absorbing and emotionally truthful story about the conflict between generations and the misunderstandings that can break families apart" * The School Librarian * "By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, and always life-affirming, this will be adored by readers who enjoyed Jacqueline Wilson at a younger age." -- Joanne Owen * Lovereading4Kids * "Thought-provoking, sad, touching and funny... this is a book which does not fear discussing sexuality and transgender issues and how, like age and illness, they can marginalise people." * Armadillo Magazine * "This book is one to remember! Exploring many different and deep concepts and emotions, The Way Back Home shows the importance of family, friendship and trust." -- Olivia Arnold, age 12 * for lovereading4Kids.co.uk *
