Summary

Summary

A charming YA novel about a family who puts on an immersive, interactive play to save their historical home

Finn lives in a family of theater lovers. His older brothers are both actors, and one of his moms is an actor and the other one is a director. They even live in an enormous historic mansion owned by the Beauregard, Minnesota’s largest regional theater. Finn is desperate to be an actor, too, despite the fact that he can never seem to remember his lines. When a new artistic director threatens to sell the Jorgensen house and kick his family out of the only home he’s ever known, his family puts on a show—an immersive 1890s experience unlike anything else out there. But will it be too much for his mom Lula, who is recovering from cancer? Will Finn connect with his crush and deal with his long-time rival, Jade? Will saving the house save Finn’s acting career? Funny, warm, and full of Victorian hijinks, this is a novel for anyone looking for a place to belong.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A smart, funny, bighearted exploration of the roles people play…and the great delights that can come when we’re brave enough to veer off script. I loved it.” Elana K. Arnold, award-winning author
“Come for the high jinks, blown lines, absurd costumes, and Victorian history trivia, stay for Finn’s discovery of what truly matters when it comes to being a family. An uproarious, touching, and unforgettable delight.” Carrie Mesrobian, award-winning author
“The Roof Over Our Heads is like callbacks, opening night jitters, and the all-night cast party all rolled into one glorious shout of a book. Nicole Kronzer writes with hope and humor and captures perfectly what it’s like to long to belong.” Laura Zimmermann, award-winning author
