Praise for Welcome Home

"The best [stories in this anthology], reflect the bittersweet truths that adoptive families differ profoundly from biological ones and that coming to terms with these differences is a lifelong process." --Kirkus Reviews

"Authors across a variety of genres share stories that range from the fantastical to gritty, but all will touch readers hearts (and cause a few to shed some tears)." --School Library Journal

"This volume earns a place in every YA library and it is up to YA librarians to put it into the hands of teens who need it most." –VOYA
