Somewhere to Belong first off was a great read. This first instalment made sure to set up the story nicely. We are first introduced to Samantha. Poor girl’s kind of had it rough being kicked out of her boarding school because of a bitchy classmate. Through this she is sent home to be with her family and find another school to attend. When she makes it home she finds that nothing is as it was.
Her siblings really don’t want her around and she’s introduced to more new people who now call her house home. She really doesn’t know what to do and is at a total loss on how to live. She’s never been allowed to make her own decisions and now decides she going to step up and say what she want.
Her sibling Zach and Abigail seem to have a lot on their plate. While Zach wants to keep family close Abigail seem stand offish and just mean. The rest of the crew in the house seem nice and I really like the personalities that pop from them Archie is playful and funny, Lyra hasn’t made a big impact yet, while Barb and Kellan are a couple. Samuel though is really nice and quiet and actual lives with his mother and brother. I really like him.
I really enjoyed this book and was caught up in it from the start from the beginning. Samantha is a sweet soul who really needs to find her wings. She’s an amazing ballerina and I really like the connection she creates with everyone around her. I’m super curious to see where this story goes and to see if anything comes from Samuel and Samantha. There’s something there, at least I hope there is!
