Overview

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.
