From Christina June, author of It Started with Goodbye and Everywhere You
Want to Be, comes No Place Like Here, a modern twist on Hansel and Gretel.
Ashlyn Zanotti has big plans for the summer. She’s just spent a year at boarding
school and can’t wait to get home. But when Ashlyn’s father is arrested for tax evasion
and her mother enters a rehab facility for “exhaustion,” a.k.a. depression, her life is
turned upside down.
The cherry on top? Ashlyn’s father sends her to work with a cousin she doesn’t even
know at a rustic team-building retreat center in the middle of nowhere. A self-
proclaimed “indoor girl,” not even Ash’s habit of leaving breadcrumb quotes–
inspirational sayings she scribbles everywhere–can help her cope.
With a dangerously careless camp manager doling out grunt work, an overbearing
father trying to control her even from prison, and more than a little boy drama to
struggle with, the summer is full of challenges. And Ashlyn must make the toughest
decision of her life: keep quiet and follow her dad’s marching orders, or find the
courage to finally stand up to her father to have any hope of finding her way back
Fans looking for stories with elements of drama, romance, friendship, and an
unflinching look into navigating and improving even the most difficult parent-teen
relationships need look no further.
