I just love this book, a beautiful story of love and friendship. The characters are quirky and real, which is what makes them memorable and lovable. Even the characters' names are memorable. The theme of the book reminds us that life is about doing good in the world and never giving up. Put simply, Where the Heart Is is just touching and heart-warming. If you are in need of a pick me up, this will raise your spirits.

Could you imagine yourself pregnant and stranded by a worthless boyfriend in a walmart parking lot a long ways from home. What would you do...this book is a wonderful book about a young girl who is pregnant and left to fend for herself. She is very much a survivor setting up a 'home' IN a walmart store. This book is hard to put down.
