A Duet for Home


Author: Karina Yan Glaser


From the New York Times best-selling creator of the Vanderbeekers series comes a triumphant tale of friendship, healing, and the power of believing in ourselves told from the perspective of biracial sixth-graders June and Tyrell, two children living in a homeless shelter. 

It's June’s first day at Huey House, and as if losing her home weren’t enough, she also can’t bring her cherished viola inside. Before the accident last year, her dad saved tip money for a year to buy her viola, and she’s not about to give it up now.

Tyrell has been at Huey House for three years, and after he and June bond over their love of music, June gets a glimpse of the good things about living in Huey House: friendship, hot meals, and a classical musician next door. But their small joys and their healing are threatened by a new government policy that could rip it all away.

Can Tyrell and June work together to oppose the unfair housing policy that threatens to send homeless residents back to the street, or will their families be forced out of Huey House before they are ready?
