Description


A picture book touching on the impact of moving away from home and how this effects our relationships and sense of belonging, but also how it can open us up to new experiences and allow us to cherish the old ones.

"A lovely story to share with anyone who is struggling to find comfort in a new situation."
—STARRED REVIEW School Library Journal

When Nyla is forced to leave her home in the country to start life again in the city, all she can think about is everything she misses from before.

So when a comet comes crashing through the city streets and starts growing into a forest, Nyla can’t resist a chance to head somewhere that feels closer to what she had before ... but what starts as an escape could be just the thing to make her finally feel at home.
