It's been a year since John lost his girlfriend, Leah, to suicide. Living with his uncle keeps his mind from the tragedy and his screwed up family-until he gets into trouble and a judge sends him back home. With a neglectful mother and abusive brother, John's homecoming is far from happy.
As he tries to navigate and repair the relationships he abandoned years ago, Emily, the girl next door, is the only bright spot. She's sweet and smart and makes him think his heart may finally be healing. But tragedy isn't far away, and John must soon face an impossible decision: save his family or save himself.
Stacie Ramey is a young adult author who is represented by Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency.
Stacie learned to read at a very early age to escape the endless tormenting from her older siblings. Where the Wild Things Are was her first favorite book and she swore she'd only marry a man who could prove he had rumpus in his heart!
She attended the University of Florida, and Penn State where she received a Master of Science degree in Speech Pathology. She also met her future husband at Penn State, who surprised her one day with all of the stuffed Wild Things' characters, proving his worth.
She currently works with high school aged Autistic kids, introducing them to the literary worlds she grew up loving. When she's not working or writing, she engages in Netflix wars with her children or beats her husband in Scrabble, all while watching the Florida Gators and Penn State Nittany Lions play (Go Gators).
She lives in Florida with her husband, children, and rescue dogs.

The Homecoming was such a great and heart warming book. This book is a book about forgiveness and learning to cope when things get bad. I found this book to keep me hooked the entire time. The characters were beautifully written and I found myself very invested in their stories. The only gripe I have about this book is that the main character was a little hard headed and slightly annoying at times, but not enough to make me hate him. Overall this book was so fantastic, raw, and heart warming!
