On My Wishlist is: Displacements by Thalia Chaltas

Home is supposed to be a place you belong. It’s supposed to be parents who are there and siblings who bug you and a life that feels comfortable. It’s not supposed to be an absentee mother or a drowned sister. But that’s Vera’s reality, and she can’t stand it anymore. So she runs. She ends up in an old mining town in the middle of the California desert. It’s hot, it’s dusty, and it’s as isolated as Vera feels. As she goes about setting up her life, she also unwittingly starts the process of healing and-eventually- figuring out what home might really mean for her.

What attracted me to this book is the cover. It is so YELLOW. The book is calling to be noticed and it worked. The novel doesn’t sound like what I usually read but I like that it is set in California and the search for the meaning of “home.” Could be good.
