1987. Theres only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and thats her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finns company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, Junes world is turned upside down. But Finns death brings a surprise acquaintance into Junes lifesomeone who will help her to heal, and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart.

At Finns funeral, June notices a strange man lingering just beyond the crowd. A few days later, she receives a package in the mail. Inside is a beautiful teapot she recognizes from Finns apartment, and a note from Toby, the stranger, asking for an opportunity to meet. As the two begin to spend time together, June realizes shes not the only one who misses Finn, and if she can bring herself to trust this unexpected friend, he just might be the one she needs the most.

An emotionally charged coming-of-age novel, Tell the Wolves Im Home is a tender story of love lost and found, an unforgettable portrait of the way compassion can make us whole again.
