Description

Everyone had high expectations for Hudson Wheeler. His fourth grade teacher even wrote to his parents that Hudson was "going places." But everything went downhill after his father died on the battlefield of Iraq one year later. Now facing his senior year of high school without his two best friends by his side and with his teacher's letter still haunting him, Hudson seizes homeschooling as an opportunity to retreat from the world. What happens during this year will prove to be anything but a retreat, as Hudson experiences love and rejection for the first time; meets the Amazonian-looking girl who shows him by example what it means to be a man; and solves the painful mystery of the "girl in the window"-an apparition seen only by the WWII vet whose poignant plight forces Hudson out of the comfort zone of boyhood. Going Places is a peek into what male adolescence looks like today for those who don't follow traditional paths as they strive to find themselves.

About Kathryn Berla

Kathryn Berla is the author of the young adult novels 12 Hours in Paradise, The House at 758, Dream Me, and Going Places (which received one of VOYA Magazine's Perfect 10 ratings for 2018). The Kitty Committee, a novel of psychological suspense, is her first novel written for adult readers. When she's not writing, she's reading (usually three or four books concurrently). When she's not reading, she's either dreaming about traveling or actually traveling. And when she's doing none of the above, you can probably find her in a movie theater, watching Netflix, or exercising. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
