How To Find Home

Mahsuda Snaith

Molly has lived on the streets for fifteen years. She has great friends but is always hungry and often afraid. So when a new acquaintance sets off on a journey from one side of the country to the other, to a place she’s long wanted to see, Molly decides to go too.

But it isn’t easy to leave the past behind. At every stop on their unusual quest, Molly senses something behind her, the footsteps of an old adversary and a memory that cannot be forgotten. And yet she must find the courage to continue if she’s ever going to discover a place that really feels like home.

A vibrant, invigorating, and affecting novel and the inspiring portrait of a young homeless woman from Observer New Face of Fiction Mahsuda Snaith.

“Those who love Little Fires Everywhere and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine will love this.”
My Weekly
“Brilliant! Unflinchingly honest on the realities of being homeless but never loses hope, positivity or humour ... With beautiful characters who might be demonised in real life or in the media but who are humanised here. Everyone should read it! ”
Amanda Berriman, author of 'Home'
“An inspiring modern retelling of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz . . . Both invigorating and affecting, How to Find Home is an important tale for our times. ”
Vanity Fair
“Sparky and alive . . . I really cared about Molly”
Maggie Gee, author of 'My Cleaner'
