No Place Like Here by Christina June

Genres: YA, Contemporary, Retellings
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.
A TL;DR OF MY REVIEW:
- 4 stars!
- Romance went too fast for me
- HELLO HAVE YOU SEEN THIS COVER IT IS BEAUTIFUL 😍😍😍
So I enjoyed this book! But I didn’t love it? And I think most of the reason is because the romance just went too fast for me. So if you’re someone who loves quick romances, this is the book for you! But if you’re like me and you don’t, just be aware that this may not be a favorite.
HELLO OMG THIS COVER IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I don’t even know how to explain why I love it so much, I just DO. HEART EYES FOREVER!!!!
Christina June writes young adult contemporary fiction when she’s not writing college recommendation letters during her day job as a school counselor. She loves the little moments in life that help someone discover who they’re meant to become – whether it’s her students or her characters. Christina is a voracious reader, loves to travel, and hopes to one day be bicoastal – the east coast of the US and the east coast of Scotland. She lives just outside Washington DC with her husband and daughter.
She is the author of IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE, EVERYWHERE YOU WANT TO BE, and the forthcoming NO PLACE LIKE HERE.
Do you prefer romances that are more love at first sight, or slow burn? Let me know in the comments and have a splendiferous day!
