Those of you who have been viewing our page for some time, will know that we’re huge fans of Paige Toon here at Compelling Reads. So nabbing an advanced copy of If You Could Go Anywhere from the Simon & Schuster Spring blogger event naturally left us ecstatic! This time Paige introduces us to Angie a girl that dreams of travelling. She asks everyone she meets where they could go if they ‘could go anywhere’ and many of those have sent the postcodes she keeps in her room. Sadly Angie’s own circumstances meant that she hasn’t travelled but when these circumstances change and some surprising information about her father are revealed she finds herself finally on her way. The novel is set mainly in Rome as Angie meets her father and those he is close to including Alessandro. Paige does an amazing job in her descriptions of the places Angie visits, so much so that I really felt as if I were there alongside her, seeing the sights & tasting the gelato of Rome for myself. The growing friendship between Angie and Alessandro unfolds perfectly and you’ll find yourself drawn to him as much as Angie is. This book is the perfect summer read whether you find yourself travelling or just dreaming of that place you’d go, if you could go anywhere

HOW DO YOU FIND WHERE YOU'RE GOING, IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE FROM . . .

Angie has always wanted to travel. But at twenty-seven, she has barely stepped outside the small mining town where she was born. Instead, she discovers the world through stories told to her by passing travellers, dreaming that one day she'll see it all for herself.

When her grandmother passes away, leaving Angie with no remaining family, she is ready to start her own adventures. Then she finds a letter revealing the address of the father she never knew, and realises instantly where her journey must begin: Italy.

As Angie sets out to find the truth – about her family, her past and who she really is – will mysterious and reckless Italian Alessandro help guide the way?
