Calvin has lived in a lot of houses, but he still hasn’t found a home.

Calvin is in foster care, and he wants to trust someone, anyone, but is afraid to open his heart. He has lived in a lot of houses, but he still hasn’t found his home. When he moves in with Maggie, she shows him respect, offers him kindness, and makes him see things in himself that he’s never noticed before. Maybe this isn’t just another house, maybe this is a place Calvin can call home, for a while.

“Most books with this much purpose fall down on the lessons. This one transcends them, for a true story of how a home happens.” “Ultimately, the book is as much a model for foster parents as it is a story to provide validation of foster children’s experiences… Gentle and wise—especially as a read for foster parents.”
