Easter Hutton, the protagonist in the book, Homefree by Nina Wright, deals with many issues that many teenagers deal with today. Some issues include bullies picking on other students and making fun of them for their “special talents” (Wright’s reason for why they were picked on). Not only was Hutton one of these students that were picked on, she often loose concentration on class and start to doze off in addition to her family condition where her father left and her mother was pregnant with anot ...more

Easter Hutton thinks she "just might have the worst life in the world". Her parents are divorced, she's had her fair share of step-dad/boyfriend experiences, and now her mother is pregnant. Add to that a temporary home in a rundown Florida trailer park and a new school where her classmates would rather throw raw eggs at Easter than talk to her, and the reader will agree that her life is not the greatest.

If all that is not bad enou

Nina Wright's "Homefree" is a strong read. Easter Hutton's life is turned upside down when she begins astral projecting herself into places she has been in the past, an old apartment where a high school nemesis now lives, a house she once shared with her mom and the restaurant of her mom's latest boyfriend, a married snake who has sent Easter and her pregnant mother away, promising to take care of them but in fact, deserting them.

It's enough to have a mom who goes through boyfriends like most pe

This was very interesting to say the least. Homefree is a special school for those teenagers who have "special" talents--like teleporting. This was obviously the first of a series of books as the author spent a lot of time setting up the characters. The concept of Homefree was not introduced until over halfway into the book and the ending made it clear that there is another book (which I plan to read).

enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down the last two nights. I had to finish reading it.

The way it ended was good! Some of the characters in the book I didn't like they way there where (Mother, Short Ron, Dustin, Amber, James Dean) but that is what makes a good book you really get into the characters. One of my favorites in this book is Cal and believe it or not Roger.

This one was recommended by a teen and the writing was fantastic. The story is a little hard to swallow--and I love sci-fi/fantasy books. I can see loving this as a teen, but now I am too hard and jaded.

Not good at all. Poor plotting and poor characterization make this a subpar book.

Interesting approach to YA genre. This could be a fantastic series. Feels modern with a bit of a supernatural/scifi twist.
