New House 5

How a dorm becomes a home

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Welcome to New House 5. Yes, it’s the top floor of a brand new dormitory at a prestigious university. But it’s also something much more. For fifty-six freshmen, it’s home. It’s a place where friends are made and doors are always open. It’s a place where hearts are broken and tears are shed. And for Andy Butler, it’s the best story about friendship he has ever known.

Andy is the resident assistant for New House 5, and it’s his responsibility to bring the floor together, to support everyone, through their triumphs and through their letdowns. Join Andy as he shows how New House 5 becomes a family and then falls apart when hidden problems come to light. Watch as these students try to overcome their flaws and fears to create a bond so special that nothing can pull them apart. Not even themselves.

Customer Reviews

A book (and a community) that stays with you

I've read this book several times over the past few years, and enjoyed different parts of it for different reasons each time. Overall I highly recommend it to anyone who wants better insight into being an RA or a college student, or anyone who just wants to read about a really great, interesting group of people. Andy's conversational tone and smooth story-telling ability make this a quick, fun read. The characters are engaging, and every reader can find something or someone to connect to. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of each character, but in the end, it doesn't necessarily matter because the real story is about the community as a whole, its ups and downs, its evolution. (Plus you can always flip back to refresh your memory!) This book has stayed with me since the first day I read it, stimulating my thoughts and emotions. I don't think I will ever forget it, and I don't ever want to.
