Long Way Home is a heartfelt tale of an orphaned boy in search of family from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo.
Another summer. Another foster family. George has already made up his mind to run away, back to the children's home. None of the previous families have wanted him.

This book is one of my favourites because its very beautifuly written and explained. The story turns at every point and chapter and there are interesting events in the story. George is the main character of the story and he is a foster child and he is struggling to be a family member of any family. Already seven families had rejected him. Then he feels good with the Dyer,s family and can he stay there? i will prefer you to read this story. One of the marvells!!!!
