Welcome!

WHEN YOU’VE LOST WHAT MATTERS MOST, 

HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR WAY BACK HOME?

Joy Fonseca is dreading her 13th birthday, dreading being reminded again about her best friend Lukas’s senseless death on this day, one year ago — and dreading the fact he may have heard what she accidentally blurted to him the night before. 

Or maybe she’s more worried he didn’t hear.

Either way, she’s decided: she’s going to finally open the first clue to their annual birthday scavenger hunt Lukas left for her the morning he died, hoping the rest of the clues are still out there. If they are, they might lead Joy to whatever last words Lukas wrote, and toward understanding how to grab onto the future that is meant to be hers.

***

Told in dual voices and timelines — Lukas’ as he sets up the scavenger hunt one year earlier, and Joy’s a year later as she attempts to unravel it — Seven Clues to Home is a poignant and bittersweet story about words left unsaid, and finding the courage to move on.
