My Review: All too realistic.
Daisy Crispin's life is changing, in just a few months she will be on her way to college on a full ride scholarship. So for the Summer she is planning to go on a relaxing vacation to Argentina, but there's just one teeny, tiny -- HUGE problem. In order to get the full scholarship, Daisy has to complete 2 weeks of missions work. But her big Summer vacation plans don't have any room for missions. And what about her old Argentine boyfriend? What's a girl to do?
I liked how this book had a realistic feel to it and I could honestly see the things happening in real life. But I had a tough time getting into this book, and honestly I never really did. Because this book was the third in a series where I had not read the other two, it was difficult to catch up on what had happened in the last books. And there were parts that to me, were slow going. There were parts that I liked, and I really liked the conclusion, (but I can't tell you about that!).
This book was well written with a upbeat first person present tense narrative. Because the book had a great realness to it was an totally teenage over-dramatic touch, but in the end I have concluded that the book didn't relate to me, personally. And overall, I guess I'm just sorry that I couldn't appreciate this book as much as it deserves, and as much as a I wanted to.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
