SURPRISE RELEASE: Anywhere but Here by Anna Cruise

Jacie Winslow is in the last place she wants to be. Home. 

Forced to leave school when she discovers her tuition money has mysteriously disappeared, Jacie returns to the barren wasteland of Silver Valley. Suddenly, she's back in her own version of hell, living with her irresponsible mother—and her mother's newest derelict boyfriend. 

Stuck working a dead-end job in the local coffee shop as she tries to figure out a way back to college, Jacie meets Cade, a stranger who claims to just be passing through town. Jacie can't help but wonder if there's more to his story and, as she gets to know him better, finds him to be the lone bright spot in Silver Valley. 

But bright spots are fleeting in this desolate desert town. Especially when Jacie discovers the truth about what happened to the money she'd painstakingly saved—and what she'll need to do to get it back.


I just bought this one and can't wait to read it! Here's what the author said: "Not NA,
not really YA -- just a story about a spunky girl and the sweet boy who helps her realize she's more than the sum of her circumstances."
