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. But go.

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.
