D While the girls work off their debt Carly becomes determined to travel onward until Jen confesses a terrible secret that leaves both sisters wondering if they can ever trust againSet against the backdrop of the American Southwest Walk Me Home and its resilient heroines will inspire readers and renew their faith in recovery and redemptio. Athough this is well written and the characters are well drawn the plot has a hole in it a big hole which is never filled Carly and Jen uickly leave their home in New Mexico It is clear that they have just discovered that their mother has died and Carly fears that Social Services will put them in a home probably separate homes so they are running away in the hopes that their step father Teddy will take them in Clearly they have no connection to their father but there must has once been one Carly in passing says there is no father but gives absolutely no explanation There mother is described as flitting from man to man over and over again over the life of the girls That begged the uestion of whether they were even the children of the same father Explanation is never given Did the father just walk away or is he dead We're never told Bigger than that is that none absolutely none of the adults who come in contact with these two girls ever ask about a father They are told about the step father Teddy but never ever ask about the blood father I waited the entire book for that shoe to fall and it never did Having lived in Arizona I liked the Native American aspects and the descriptions of the landscape I also liked Alvin and Delores and the many people who come in contact with Carly and her sister; they were diverse and interesting

Four and a half starsThis book shows both the good and bad sides of people All Carly and Jen have is each other Or is it It just may be some of the people they meet on their walk will change their mindsRight from the beginning I was absorbed into this story I walked every step with Carly and her younger sister Jen The characters are well drawn Carly and Jen are both lovable but so different in their outlook Carly is enterprising and determined to stick to what she believes is best even when maybe it isn’t Her stubbornness is somehow endearing because her heart and motives are on the right track When Carly realises she has some facts wrong one of the characters sums it up when he says’ Way I see it you’re one of those people with set opinions on how you want the world to behave Always trying to bend the world to fit your liking instead of the other way around So then once you make up your mind how you want something to be you start losing the eyes to see what really is’ Some allowances must be made Carly is only 16 after all and she has not had the easiest upbringing Strikes me though that Carly is not alone in that attitude In this world there are than a few of us who see only want we want to see and shape our views opinions and actions accordingly This is the second novel I have read by this author and I will definitely be keeping my eye out for others She writes with heart compassion and honesty and realistic characters A book that will tug at your emotions
