Summary: Chinelo, or Nelo as her best friend Kate calls her, is all about her neighborhood Ginger East. She loves its chill vibe, ride-or-die sense of community, and her memories of growing up there. Ginger East isn't what it used to be, though. After a deadly incident at the local arcade, all her closest friends moved away, except for Kate. But as long as they have each other, Nelo's good. Only, Kate's parents' corner store is vandalized, leaving Nelo shaken to her core. The police and the media are quick to point fingers, and soon more of the outside world descends on Ginger East with promises to "fix" it. Suddenly, Nelo finds herself in the middle of a drama unfolding on a national scale. Worse yet, Kate is acting strange. She's pushing Nelo away at the exact moment they need each other most. Nelo's entire world is morphing into something she hates, and she must figure out how to get things back on track or risk losing everything⁠—and everyone⁠—she loves.

When we were doing research about some 2021 debut authors that we were interested in working with, LIKE HOME immediately got put on our radar. For starters, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and caught our eye. And the story itself seems super intriguing -- it seems like it's going to be a really important, intense story that will keep us hooked from start to finish .We're so excited to hopefully get a chance to read and review this in the future! And be on the lookout for our interview with Louisa -- coming soon! :-)
