Girls who travel

Described by the publisher as a 'witty, travel inspired debut novel', Girls who Travel is a great read for people (especially women) who have an appetite for tasting what other countries have to offer.

The book's central character, Kika Shores, has itchy feet after a year-long backpacking adventure. After landing a job in London as a nanny to two little girls, she is poised for a life of travel and tasty foods. Trouble is, there's an equally tasty new neighbour. 

RT Book Reviews sums it up this way: 'The author gives us plenty to enjoy: travel, young love, self-discovery and animated characters... (Kika) and her journey are nothing short of lovable.'

Girls who Travel, by Nicole Trilivas, published by Penguin Random House, 2015, paperback, rrp A$32.99.
