The Home Corner by Ruth Thomas
Luisa is 19 and finds herself drifting after a series of incidents. Her plans to go to Uni, and her talent as an artist, fall by the wayside as she flounders, and finds herself working as a teaching assistant to a class of five year olds.
This is a subtle, charming and funny story, and I could relate to Luisa who found herself living a life she didn’t want, and didn’t understand how she had ended up there. The story is very sweet and easy to read – but it is definitely not for fans of action-packed novels!
