Review by Rosa
Amy is fiercely protective of her little sister Zoe, who is younger by three years and navigating a debilitating health condition. Written in two sections which demonstrate the difference and gradual divide between the two sisters, Homesick is a book about growing up and growing apart, mutual dependence and the shaky acceptance of the fact that your life might not always be intertwined with those you want to keep close. Intimate, devastating and clever yet not overly complicated, Homesick is a brilliant exploration of life, love and loss.
