    FREE READ á The Last Road Home The Last Road HomeI'm not going to say much about The Last Road Home because I don't like being too critical of first novels and based on the very positive reviews so far my mixed reaction to this book appears to make me an outlier The setting idea and themes were real draws for me The book focuses on Junebug a white orphaned teen in North Carolina in the 1960s who's only friends are two neighbouring black twins The book focuses on the tensions and complications that flow from these relationships over the course of several years racism and violence an ever present overlay Despite thi
