(Recommended for grade 5 and above)
Is it possible to feel homesick in your own home? That’s what Benny wonders after his mom leaves and his dad begins filling the house with junk. Fortunately, a new radio station has just opened where Benny is able to find refuge. But what he really wants to find is a cure for homesickness. Set back when phones still had cords and clocks had hands, Homesick is a story about the end of a marriage, the beginning of a friendship, and those complicated days when life can seem like one big mess for a boy who’s no longer a child but not yet a man.
