This book follows the adventures of three friends as they spend a year in Europe as Year Abroad Students. Robin goes to Europe where she tries to hide the Texan in her. Dana goes to France with one thing on her mind - finding Mr. Romantic. Carrie spends the year in Italy pretending to be Italian. Nothing turns out quite like they planned, but in the end, it all works out for the best.
I don't usually like books written in first person - especially when the perspective changes back and forth throughout, but I liked this book. The first story was my favorite and I liked each one a little less as they went on. It's worth the credit for the first story alone, in my opinion.
Three best friends from Texas set out together to spend a year of high school in Europe's biggest cities.
Kit travels to London to try and become a proper lady. She believes that she'll have a new sister as a housemate -- imagine her surprise when Robin turns out to be a boy (and a real hottie!). Unfortunately, he has a girlfriend with serious snark aimed at Kit and all of her traveling blunders.
Dana journeys to Paris for a romantic relationship, but instead she seems to always run into a boy from Texas. To make things worse, she keeps thinking about him when all she wants is to be swept off her feet by a Frenchman.
Carrie spends her year in Rome, where her father still has family. While working at the family restaurant, she meets a gorgeous waiter who happens to hate Americans. She tricks him by blending into the Italian world and now she knows her heart will break when he learns the truth.
All three girls come to terms with themselves and romance during their year abroad. Read this novel and be swept off your feet while traveling the world in your pajamas. Rachel Hawthorne is one of the top writers of teen romance!
