"This endlessly fun and hugely entertaining romp through Europe had me laughing out loud and reaching for my passport.” —Jennifer E. Smith, author of Windfall
A POPSUGAR Best Young Adult Novel of 2017!
Nineteen-year-old Sydney has the perfect summer mapped out. She’s spending the next four and a half weeks travelling through Europe with her childhood best friend Leela. Their plans include Eiffel Tower selfies, eating cocco gelato, and making out with très hot strangers.
Her plans do not include Leela’s cheating ex-boyfriend showing up on the flight to London, falling for the cheating ex-boyfriend’s très hot friend, monitoring her mother’s spiraling mental health via texts, or feeling like the rope in a friendship tug of war.
In this hilarious and unforgettable adventure, New York Times bestselling author Sarah Mlynowski tells the story of a girl learning to navigate secret romances, thorny relationships, and the London Tube. As Sydney zigzags through Amsterdam, Switzerland, Italy, and France, she must learn when to hold on, when to keep moving, and when to jump into the Riviera...wearing only her polka dot underpants.
Nineteen-year-old Sydney has never traveled far from home: she's felt compelled to watch over her agoraphobic mother ever since her father left years \nearlier. Sydney is ready for a respite from family responsibilities, so when her best friend Leela breaks up with her boyfriend and needs another summer travel companion in Europe, Sydney hesitantly agrees to accompany her. What follows is Mlynowski's (Don't Even Think About It) hilarious if predictable recounting of two girls' mishaps, adventures, romantic escapades, and heartbreaks while traveling from country to country. There are reflective moments, too, as Sydney battles with guilt for leaving her younger sister in charge at home and worries (after a couple of minor panic attacks) that she may have inherited her mother's disorder. Then there's the matter of Leela's ex, who shows up in Europe wanting to make amends and whose own travel companion steals Sydney's heart. Witty with a serious edge, this book encapsulates the wonder, joy, and anxieties that accompany any journey. Ages 14 up. \n
I'm so excited
Having read the sample, I'm already in love with the characters and the plot. Can it already be midnight so I can read it completely?!
Study abroad memories
If you have every back packed or studied abroad in Europe this book brings up some of the best cities with the story. I loved this book and the author knocked it out of the park.
