‘Come in. Press PLAY. Tell me what you like about this song. Shout out your dreams, cravings, obsessions from when the track starts, right through to the end. I’ll shout too, you, me, together, louder until we’re a wall of sound. We are trying to find things, people, places we love, and everything counts—songs, films, books, fathers, lovers, friends, and brothers.’
Jen and Steven meet at sixteen and marry at eighteen. Soon they’re the parents of three young children.
Initially, the kids keep them together until love turns to lies and the family implodes. As they grow into adults, each child faces love and loss in the shadow of their family legacy.
You Belong Here is a book about trust and connection. About what keeps us going, in spite of ourselves.
About a place where we belong.
