Book and Author Spotlight: Getting Rooted in New Zealand by Jamie Baywood

I'm very pleased to spotlight a lovely author today, Jamie Baywood, and her wonderful book, Getting Rooted in New Zealand. This sounds like a delightful read!


Title: Getting Rooted in New Zealand
Author: Jamie Baywood
Published: April 21, 2013
Purchase:  Amazon  |  B&N

Summary: 

Craving change and lacking logic, at 26, Jamie, a cute and quirky Californian, impulsively moves to New Zealand to avoid dating after reading that the country's population has 100,000 fewer men. In her journal, she captures a hysterically honest look at herself, her past and her new wonderfully weird world filled with curious characters and slapstick situations in unbelievably bizarre jobs. It takes a zany jaunt to the end of the Earth and a serendipitous meeting with a fellow traveler before Jamie learns what it really means to get rooted.
