I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring.
Until this year.
And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things:
1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes.
2. If I hear the phrase, “You’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac.
3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish.
4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean paradise.
5. See number four above. Because it brings with it a whole slew of problems and I’ve learned something from every one of them.
Let’s start with the fact that Dante’s world is five light-years away from mine. He goes to black-tie functions and knows the Prime Minister of England on a first name basis. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas and wear cut-off jeans paired with cowboy boots. See the difference?
But hearts don’t care about differences. Hearts want what they want. And mine just wants to be Dante’s girl.
Series: The Paradise Diaries
Author: Courtney Cole
This is the first book I've read by Courtney Cole who has nothing paranormal about it. These are ordinary people with nothing exciting but a very special boy and girl. The book is written well and I like the story very much.
The book is about 17 year old Reece, she is extremely funny and has lots of funny ideas. She seems like an extremely lively girl, but can be shy. To me it seems that she has very low self-esteem and do not see her selves very well.
Dante seems like a nice guy and, as you might fell in love with, even if he is fictional. He is polite and can charm anybody.
Do you want to read a book about love, a lot of drama, action and a book that can make you cry? Then this book is for you!
The cover is very good and shows some of the action in the book.
The title fits well because it's just that Reece and everyone else who reads the book will want to be.
What I'm wondering is if there will be more books in the series that's all about them, or if there are others we are going to be familiar with.
I give this book a 4 of 6
