A special reissue of a bestselling Australian classic from award-winning author Steven Herrick.
Jack and Annabel have been dating for two years. With high school over they’re about to start university – until Jack decides to chuck it all in.
I think you and Annabel should get out of here
as fast as possible.Have a year doing anything
you want. My going-away present is enough money
to buy a car – a cheap old one, okay? You’ll have to
work somewhere to buy the petrol, and to keep going.
No destination in mind, Jack and Annabel leave town and discover themselves in a place they never knew existed.
An inspiring verse novel about the pursuit of dreams and the realities of life, A Place Like This was shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year: Older Readers and New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards and commended in the Victorian Premier's Literary Award Sheaffer Pen Prize for Young Adult Fiction.
