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 home.

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.

MY REVIEW

What a beautiful cover!! It is what drove me to read it. 
This is a new to me author and as soon as I got the book I discovered it was a part if a series! Darn I always do that!!
But anyway I loved the characters and I especially loved the setting!!
It sort of reminds me of my own camp days when I was a little girl up til I was a teen. 
Days spent at camp were fun because I was always having fun and learning new things. Sometimes even making new friends was a part of it.
I also liked this novel because the author shows us that even our parents are human and can ha e their own set of problems.
I don't know much about depression but it can be a serious thing. 
Sometimes even parents can mess up and when serious things like with Ashlyn's dad, it can hurt the whole family even your kids. Wow!! 
I enjoyed this story and I strongly recommend it. 
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and no compensations were received. All opinions are my own
P.S. I wish I would have known this was on Netgalley. I would have read an earlier copy of it
