  • Antipodes
    Antipodes
    Age range 14 to 18

    When Erin Cerise steps off her plane in Christchurch, New Zealand, she's determined to overcome her losses of swim team captainship, her boyfriend Ben, and her reputation. Her mother is certain studying abroad will regain Erin's chances of a good future. Once Erin meets her uninspiring host family and city, though, she's not so sure.


    Before Christchurch, Erin wasn't always intense and focused. When had her priorities gone upside down?

    Now, Erin balks at NZ's itchy school uniforms, its cold houses, and her hosts' utter inability to pronounce her name correctly. Christchurch does boast amazing rock climbing, gorgeous scenery, and at least one guy who could make her journey worthwhile-if she lets him.

    With months ahead of her, Erin slowly begins to draw on the years behind her, one step back into her memories at a time. As she rebuilds herself from the other side of the world, she finds that although her life has been turned upside down and she's far from home, every way she moves takes her closer to where she came from.
