About the Book

Back Home

BACK HOME is the story of 13-year-old Rachel Ann "Brownie" Browning, whose family faces a tragic loss. Her father has just returned from the war in Iraq. He has suffered a traumatic brain injury --- and is no longer the father she knew.
Keller's powerful and affecting novel explores important territory --- the challenges faced by families of returning soldiers across America, many thousands of whom have suffered traumatic brain injuries. BACK HOME is one of the first children's books to explore this emotionally fraught territory.
