Carry me home / Janet Fox.

Fox, Janet S., (author.).


Twelve-year-old Lulu and her younger sister, Serena, have a secret. As Daddy always says, “it's best if we keep it to ourselves,” and so they have. But hiding your past is one thing. Hiding where you live - and that your Daddy has gone missing - is harder. At first, Lulu isn't worried. Daddy has gone away once before and he came back. But as the days add up, with no sign of Daddy, Lulu struggles to take care of the responsibilities they used to manage as a family. Lulu knows that all it takes is one slip-up for their secret to come spilling out, for Lulu and Serena to be separated, and for the good things that have been happening in school to be lost. But family is all around us, and Lulu must learn to trust her new friends and community to save those she loves and to finally find her true home.
