The first Young Adult fiction novel by internationally bestselling and award-winning Australian author Carole Wilkinson.

Jackie has left Australia with a psychedelic suitcase and a dream to become a world-famous fashion
designer. She knows exactly where she’s going and how she’s going to get there. So how does a weekend in Paris send her spinning off-course? How does she end up somewhere she couldn’t even find on a map?


Carole Wilkinson is an award-winning and much loved author of books for children. She has a long-standing fascination with dragons and is interested in the history of everything. Though Carole has written over 30 books, she did not write her first book until she was nearly 40. Before that she had worked as a laboratory assistant and as a film and television writer and editor.


A beautifully paced, closely observed and utterly compelling story about losing a dream and finding your passion… you’re not reading this book, you’re living it.

This convincing and inspiring adventure smells of freedom… it’s Wilkinson’s excellent characterisation – peppered with a touch of romance and big dreams – that mostly underpins the narrative drive, making for an engrossing page-turner.
