Life leads you to unexpected places. Love brings you home. 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. 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. … (mere)

An interesting plot about the effects of emotional abuse, but it ended too neatly and lacked enough emotional complexity in its resolution. I did appreciate that it didn't end with a romance as part of the conclusion. ( )
  SGKowalski | Aug 1, 2020 |
A story about the longing for home even when it’s not perfect or you don’t feel worthy of it, No Place Like Here is a poignant and moving story.

Ashlyn Zanotti’s summer plans (and her unforeseeable future) go up in smoke when her father lands in prison, her mother checks herself into rehab for exhaustion, and she’s sentenced to working at a summer retreat camp. Over the course of her time there, Ashlyn discovers support in unexpected places and the courage to speak up for herself, even with her father’s disapproving voice acting as her conscience.

Using touches from Hansel and Gretel, Christina June gives readers another engaging book with a young heroine whose journey to obtain her deepest with, to go home again, finds her strength and individualism. Young readers will enjoy this summer read with a memorable setting, plenty of conflict, and an ending that offers the promise of wishes realized.
