About the Book: Colby Cavendish is in for a cruel summer. Her parents are involved in a bitter angry divorce and have shippped Colby off to a super small boring island in Greece to spend summer with her crazy aunt Tally. The timing couldn't be worse-Colby just recently managed to break into the "in-crowd" and become friends with the popular Amanda and finally hook up with her long-time crush, the hottie Levi. Colby is convinced this summer is going to be the worst ever until she opens herself up to the possibility of having a good time and meets a very cute local named Yannis. One thing is for sure, this summer will be one to remember.
GreenBeanTeenQueenSays: I am a HUGE fan of anything written by Alyson Noel, so I was super excited when an advanced copy of this book (actually signed by the author herself!) found it's way into my hands. I wasn't able to read it right away, because work got in the way, so this week I finally was able to sit down and travel to Greece with Colby and Yannis. The story is told through Colby's "Journal for Desperate Times", e-mails, letters and her blog. Colby's desperate measures made me laugh out loud and she was a great narrator and very relateable. The whole time I was reading I wanted to pack my bags and join Colby and Yannis on Tinos. This is one book that should be on everyone's summer beach read list!
