I guess, I have a soft spot for travel literature and coming of age stories. When I picked up this book, I wasn`t quite sure if it`s a memoir (which I would prefer more) or fiction. Now I can say it`s a fiction with some of author`s travel experiences.
So, the main character is 18-year-old Bria - scared to take risks, doing what others expect her to do. Somehow she is brave or stupid enough to go on a Global Vagabond tour to Central America. Her trip turns out not what she expected, but she finds love and herself while traveling with backpack through Belize and Guatemala with Rowan.
It was nice, it was easy to read, it had this exotic background. Main characters were quite like-able and I enjoyed my time with this book. Only problem for me was - it was too light and Rowan`s past left some questions. I felt like author didn`t want to answer them, because then her sweet and romantic plot would need some changes.
It`s good for YA and if you search for some light, easy read with travel involved. Just don`t use it as guide book.
