There’s no place like home—except when it’s a faded resort town like Derton-on-Sea. Which is why, eighteen years ago, Josh Peters couldn’t wait to escape the place he thinks of as ‘the last resort’ for the bright lights of London.
Now his dad is sick, and his mum needs him, so he’s back, living in his cramped teenage bedroom. But he’s promised himself he won’t be staying for long.
With simmering family tensions a little too close for comfort, and amongst the old friends, old enemies, and old flames he left behind, he’s worried that some things may never change.
But is Derton the same place he was desperate to leave back then, full of failures and bitter memories, or has it been doing just fine without him? As Josh revisits his past, will he find that the only one who hasn’t moved on is him?
His London life is calling him back. But sometimes, home is where the heart is…
Home is a funny, bittersweet, heart-warming novel from the bestselling author of A Day at the Office.
