A special needs teacher who lived in 24 different places during her childhood, debut novelist Sarah Dooley taps her expertise and channels her experiences for this powerful tale. Livvie Owen is autistic. She doesn’t feel things the same way her parents and sister do, and she’s confused why her family has to keep moving from one home to another. There is only one place where Livvie ever felt truly happy. She wants to return there now, but there’s a problem. Livvie burned that house to the ground.

Listener Opinions

    " An eye-opening look into the mind of the autistic narrator as she deals with how her outbursts have affected her family and their ever-changing living situation. As a disclaimer, I know and am fond of the author Sarah Dooley, but even if I wasn't I'd enjoy this story. A must-read for kids who could identify with Livvie, her family or her classmates. "

    " A top notch addition to the recent batch of autism narrative reads. Developed well & of distinctive voice, it's easy to fall in luv w/ Livvie & crew. Two thumbs up -- for teens and tweens. "

    " Livvie Owen Lived here is a beautiful book about taking home with you wherever you go. Livvie made me frustrated and happy and in the end I just wanted to hug her to pieces. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/19/2013

    " This was a good read. It was interesting because it was told from the POV of Livvie, who is autistic. You feel her frustration and pain as she battles with the effects of autism. It's a story about family and hope. "

    " I thought the book would be interesting, but I couldn't get past the 4th chapter. It dragged and did not hold my interest. Too many prospects on my shelves to waste time finishing this. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 ZuzKo | 12/4/2013

    " I can't believe that someone put more than 2 stars ... I really think that reading this book was just a waste of time. There's actually no plot, narrative skills of author didn't persuade me that girl is authist, and I had to force myself to read next page. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronda Barnes | 8/16/2013

    " An excellent story about a girl with autism. The wonderful part is that the main character is a girl with sisters and family problems above all else. The disability is revealed throughout the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/12/2012

    " It was okay. Not a bad book, but I'm not sure that I would recommend it to anyone. It's just not my type of book. I had trouble paying attention to it and focussing while reading it. It just couldn't keep my attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/24/2012

    " I enjoyed this book . . . so much so that I finished it in one day. Being an educator who has worked with many autistic children, Livvie is a very believable character. This book is a good one to recommend to teens who need more empathy for autistic children. "

    " A quirky book - told from the perspective of Livvie, an 11 year-old girl with autism. If you have a child with autism, you will appreciate the interesting view of the world from Livvie's perspective. If not, it might be hard to take. "
