A Duet for HomeA Duet for Home by Karina Yan Glaser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a book that explores housing insecurity through two kids who find themselves in a homeless shelter. Tyrell has been at the shelter for some time, whereas June finds herself there after the impact of a family tragedy. The story focuses on how they each navigate this environment and reality. Their situations become more complicated when the city decides to change their approach to their shelter and the city's homeless population. What the story then spotlights is how these policies cause more harm than good. The book does a really outstanding job of using the realities of the characters to explain the realities of these issues beyond the story. Thanks to NetGalley for the early look at this April 2022 release.
