Snagged

Oxbrook is like so many country towns in Australia, everyone knows everyone else and most young people want to get out. Sam, the butcher’s daughter and closet vegetarian, is no different. She and her best mate Beth plan to head to Brisbane as soon possible; to start their new careers and to cut a swathe through Brisbane’s eligible bachelors. That is until Sam meets Josh – Josh has done the unthinkable and moved back home to try and start his own career and mend fences with his family.

A poignant and funny story about coming of age, discovering who you are, and vegetarian sausages.
