This book is about a young girl, Lucy, who travels to Italy the summer before her freshman year of college. Lucy has dreams of being an actress, but her father has his own ideas. He bribes her with a trip to Europe before her freshman year as long as she promises to major in business at his alma mater. Lucy meets a love interest while in Italy, but has to leave him once the summer comes to an end.
Lucy returns home and has to face many decisions. Lucy needs to decide whether giving up her dreams for her family is worth it, while also balancing her feelings between a boy at school and the boy from Italy.
This is an easy read for someone looking to relax and get through a book in a short amount of time. However, it is a young adult novel, so I wouldn’t recommend it to somebody looking for a more complex plot.
