Sometimes you have to leave your life behind to find your place in the world.
After five years at secondary school spent without any friends, Peyton King starts sixth form college determined that things will be different. Whatever happens, she will make friends at any cost.
When she finds the friends she’s always dreamed of, including an actual boyfriend, she’s happier than she’s ever been.
But when they let her down in the worst way, Peyton is left no better off than when she started.
Now Peyton knows the only chance she has of finding happiness is to look for it somewhere else. Her life may feel small, but it doesn’t have to be. With nothing but her sketchpad and a backpack, she buys a one-way ticket and gets on a plane. . .
Why I Can’t Wait for this book:
I have literally loved every Sara Barnard book and I am so excited to get this book! I’m not particularly into travel narratives and it’s so funny this was announced for publication before COVID and then COVID hit and and shut down everyone’s travel plans, but this might be the bit of escapism we need!
