Description

A special needs teacher who lived in 24 different places during her childhood, debut novelist Sarah Dooley taps her expertise and channels her experiences for this powerful tale. Livvie Owen is autistic. She doesn't feel things the same way her parents and sister do, and she's confused why her family has to keep moving from one home to another. There is only one place where Livvie ever felt truly happy. She wants to return there now, but there's a problem. Livvie burned that house to the ground. "A book that will challenge and touch you to the core."-Meg Cabot

Professional reviews

"Angela Rogers portrays 14-year-old Livvie Owens, who is autistic. Livvy's methods of finding comfort are quirky--she arranges mugs in the middle of the night, sleeps beneath nine blankets, and writes "Livvie Owen Lived Here" in every home she's lived in. Rogers expertly depicts the complex responses of Livvy's family--her sisters' frustrated compassion, her father's barely restrained temper, and her mother's exhausted gentleness. Between Livvy's words and the reactions of those around her, listeners grow to understand that the family is coping not only with Livvy but also with economic stresses that have led to one eviction after another. The story's poignant details and Rogers's excellent narration give listeners empathy for Livvy's inability to understand emotions--her own and those of others. S.W.
