If 16-year-old Carly and 11-year-old Jen can find Teddy, Carly knows he’ll save them from foster care...if he can forgive them for their mother’s vicious lies about him. But when the starving girls get caught stealing food on a Native American reservation, their journey gets put on hold. And after Jen makes a heartbreaking confession, Carly wonders if they’ll ever escape the pain of the past. Set against the backdrop of the American Southwest, Walk Me Home and its resilient heroines will inspire listeners and renew their faith in recovery and redemption.

What made the experience of listening to Walk Me Home the most enjoyable?

There were many aspects of this book that I found so enjoyable! Catherine Ryan Hyde's engaging writing meshed so well with narrator Cristina Panfilio voice and performance that I could not wait to listen to this book at every chance I got.

Panfilio's presentation of this book was so wonderful that I searched for other audiobooks narrated by her, something I've NEVER done. Her performance also prompted me to write this review, something else I've never done. Excellent pairing of book and narrator!

The story itself is the wonderful, character-driven tale of Carly and her journey in becoming a well-adjusted young lady after the sudden death of her mother. Outstanding book. Outstanding audiobook.

Highly recommended.
