About this title

Synopsis:

You are not alone. We all want to connect and belong, and the characters in these stories will go to hilarious and outrageous lengths to be seen and heard in a world that is not always listening.
If you loved the imaginative and heartfelt humor in Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette and Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove, you'll love the unforgettable wit and heart of Somewhere to Turn.
This funny and compassionate collection will resonate with busy readers who are just one missed therapy session away from:

  • Stopping at an intersection to correct a misspelling on a handheld cardboard sign
  • Worrying that your corporate communications job is about to be outsourced to a pod of dolphins
  • Discovering that you have a secret doppelganger, and she is skinnier and more successful than you are
  • Feeling a special kinship with a GPS program who wants a little more from the relationship than simply giving directions
We're all just trying to stay happy and hopeful in the face of massive to-do lists. But when your smartphone gleefully takes compromising pictures of you while you're sleeping...well...there's only so much that even a fictional character can take.
With startling originality, Award Winning author Linda Peters packs humor, sadness and compassion into these bite-sized tales that will remind you of your favorite sweet and satirical stories from fiction legends Kurt Vonnegut, Etgar Keret and George Saunders.
These 37 tiny stories will make you laugh, cry, think, feel, and maybe even forget about your insomnia for a few hours. Scroll up to the orange Buy button and get your copy now.
