So how does a weekend in Paris send her spinning off-course? How does she end up somewhere she couldn't even find on a map?

"A beautifully paced, closely observed and utterly compelling story about losing a dream and finding your passion. Wilkinson creates perfectly the aching uncertainty and glorious adventures of a girl on the road, and transports you so completely into an exotic and dangerous journey that you're not reading this book, you're living it." Julia Lawrinson

"This convincing and inspiring adventure smells of freedom ... it's Wilkinson's excellent characterisation - peppered with a touch of romance and big dreams - that mostly underpins the narrative drive, making for an engrossing page-turner." Bookseller+Publisher

"A fast-paced, colourful, compelling novel. Highly recommended for young adults and adults." Magpies magazine
