The day she turned twelve, Joy's best friend died. A year later, she is dreading her birthday, expecting to be torn up all over again about Lukas's senseless, accidental death and the fact that Lukas may have misunderstood the last words they spoke to each other that day. Then she begins the scavenger hunt that he left for her the previous year, and the clues could still be out there. If they are, they just might point Joy toward the future that is meant to be hers.
Told in dual timelines and points of view--Lukas's as he sets up a scavenger hunt, and Joy's trying to unravel it a year later--Seven Clues to Home is a moving and bittersweet story about words left unsaid and finding the courage to move on.
