Anywhere’s Better Than Here
By (author) Zoe Venditozzi
Laurie has no idea where her life is going. She lives with her computer game-obsessed boyfriend who she can barely be bothered to speak to and she works in a meaningless job in an office where she avoids her co-workers. When Laurie meets an older, secretive man things take an unexpected turn and Laurie realises she needs a plan, and fast. Anywhere’s Better Than Here is a portrait of a young woman’s growing self- awareness as she finally decides to grow up and make her way in the world.
