A moving story about love, loss, and the unlikely places we find home.

Poppy's life has been turned upside down after her grandma (and guardian) had a stroke and ended up in the hospital. But Poppy is working on a plan to help Grandma Beth so their life together can go back to normal. But when she witnesses an armed robbery, "back to normal" slips even further out of her reach. To keep Poppy safe, the budget-strapped police devise an unusual "witness protection program," wherein Poppy will stay with Detective Brannigan's mother. Soon Poppy is feeling almost at home, even making sort-of friends with a girl named Lizzie and definitely befriending Gunner, a beautiful dog with an uncertain fate. But it's still not home. So while she and Lizzie navigate a rocky friendship and plot to save Gunner's life, Poppy also tries to figure out a new plan to save Grandma Beth and their home, all while avoiding a dangerous robber who might be searching for her. But what if Grandma Beth can never come home and the robber is put behind bars? What will happen to Poppy then?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite books! I bought this a few years ago and have read it countless times! The story line, though simple, is complex at the same time. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend and I already have. It shoes purity and strength, it shows struggle but it also sends the message that things will turn out alright even if it's not the ending you were hoping for. I own more than 500 books and whenever someone asks me which book is my favorite "A Million Ways Home" is always the first thing that pops into my head!
