Mediterranean Holiday by Kate Cann:
In this book a girl named Chloe finds whats important to her and what she can live without. This book is about a girl named Chloe who meets a girl named Davinia, Davinia first seems like a rebel but soon Chloe finds she is more of a rebel than "Dav". When Chloe thinks shes found her arch enemy it turns out he may be the perfect one for her... With a surprising twist in the end involving her mother and a special guy and a couple very generous empolyers, this book was a very fun read. I read it in about a week only because i had schoolwork to slow me up! but i recommend this book for anyone recently goiing through a breakup or anyone with a steady-strong relationship because it only makes your heart larger... This read was a charming tale and will warm your heart no matter what you situation.

Kate Cann writes a scrumptious tale of a dream vacation that features more twists and turns than a roller-coaster in MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY, a coming-of-age story that never fails to entertain.

Chloe, a British teen, is trying to regroup and adjust to living with just her dad, after her mom leaves the family for her lover. She decides to refrain from all contact with her mother and does her best to avoid even thinking about her. When stunningly beautiful and spoiled Davinia arrives at Chloe's private school, her presence is a welcome distraction for Chloe. She finds Davinia utterly fascinating and will do anything it takes to befriend her. Throwing away her old friends without a second thought, Chloe spends more and more time with the dangerously daring Davinia in and out of school.

The two become fast friends and before she knows it, Chloe is invited to vacation with Davinia's wealthy family on the luxurious island of Caminos, a small island in the Mediterranean. Chloe jumps at the opportunity and daydreams about all of the exciting adventures that she and Davinia will have over the course of their summer. As soon as school's out, the two girls leave behind everything drab in Britain for the sunshine and swimming in Caminos.

Right away--well, as soon as they board the plane--Chloe meets a boy that leaves her breathless, and over the course of the summer, Chloe finds herself trying to balance her friendship with Davinia, her pursuit of romance, her family situation, and her newfound independence.

But Davinia doesn't turn out to be the girl Chloe thought she was and somebody Chloe thought she never wanted to see again suddenly shows up on the island. Suddenly, Chloe's Mediterranean vacation is nothing like she thought it would be. Will Chloe be able to straighten out her holiday mess and enjoy her last few weeks on Caminos?

MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY is a sweet and spicy look at the real life challenges behind a seemingly perfect vacation. I can only hope that someday I'll have a summer vacation as action-packed as Chloe's!
