Can’t Wait Wednesday – DESTINATION ANYWHERE by Sara Barnard


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is DESTINATION ANYWHERE by Sara Barnard.  I’ve had great luck with all of Sara Barnard’s novels that I’ve read so far, so I’m definitely looking forward to her latest.  Based on the synopsis, it promises to be an emotional read.



Publication Date:  February 23, 2021 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


From Goodreads:

Perfect for fans of Morgan Matson and Sarah Dessen, this lushly written and heart-wrenching novel follows a teen girl on a one-way trip away from her life and slowly reveals what made her leave it all behind.

Sometimes you have to leave your life behind to find your place in the world…

Peyton King has always wanted to belong. She seizes the opportunity to start over at a new school and finally finds real connections with the friends she’s always dreamed of and even an actual boyfriend!

But after flying high in her newfound happiness, Peyton comes crashing down when reality sets in and the ones she cares about let her down. Peyton’s friends can’t fix her and she can’t help them if they won’t let her. If she wants to find real, lasting happiness, Peyton will have to search somewhere else.

With nothing but her sketchpad and a backpack, she buys a one-way ticket and gets on a plane. How far will she go to change her story?

    This is going to be an intense coming of age story, I think. I like that everything is revealed about why she leaves everything behind as we go through book..
