"Finding Home" by Lauren Baker
Wow! This book hits hard and yet is written so beautifully. This is one of those books that after finishing, will stay with you. Let me just start by saying that this book is for the more mature young adult as there is some explicit sexual content. Lauren Baker tackles some very tough subject matter - underage male prostitution and then as if this were not enough, throws in two lead characters that have an age difference that is still considered controversial in today's society. Having said this, Lauren Baker's writing is bang on. She writes realistic, three dimentional characters with so much depth that even their flaws are endearing. She weaves an arduous plot line into a wonderful and at times shocking story that will keep the reader fully invested until the last word.
