Rating: 4 Stars
I really liked this book. The plot, most of the characters, and the setting were very well written. It really made me feel as though I wanted to be in Aubree's place. I, personally, have always dreamed of doing a grand tour of Europe. I hope someday I get that chance.
What gives this book 4 stars?
1.) I loved the plot, however it was somewhat slow in hooking me. I found that I would read part of it and then read something else because it didn't grab me in the very beginning. I also thought that Aubree was very immature in the beginning, wining about having to take her sister's place. In my opinion, she should have been thrilled, given the circumstance surrounding her opportunity, to go to Europe period.
2.) I loved the setting. I thought the author did a good job of describing each place. Her descriptions really made me feel as though I was there.
3.) I loved all the characters. I especially loved the seniors, I adored all their quirks and personalities. Sam, was the total dream boy, perfect in every possible way. If only boys in reality could be like fictional Sam. Aubrey, was very annoying in the beginning, but towards the middle and end of the story, I actually really liked her and how she was being more mature.
All in all, a good read. I liked it!
