Home : My Life in the Universe Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Grant MacDonald

Part of the Leah's Universe series

Paperback / softback


14-year-old Leah loves wilderness survival books. In fact, sometimes she wishes she could escape into the wild.

Then she could get away from the body image obsession at school and the bullies who pick on her little brother, Aiden.

As long as she could still braid her hair, she could definitely survive without home comforts... and she could explore her passion for stargazing. But alone in the woods one night, Leah's life is transformed.

She has the strangest sensation of gliding across the night sky, among millions of dazzling stars.

This profound experience sparks a burning question in Leah that no one seems able to answer. Desperate to broaden her horizons, Leah challenges herself to attend an international summer camp.

Will the people she meets there, from her first love Sean, to formidable climate activist Kayleigh, help Leah find the answer to her question: what is 'Home'?
