3 of 5 stars
A simple read that still finds a way to span many emotions
The book was not too interesting too me personally. It touched on several things: becoming independent, travel, falling in love, heartbreak, family, loss. Perhaps too many things. And although I enjoyed it, I felt like it was never "real" for me. For even a second. The main character was too perfect, not believable. But the adventure part was well-written and during those pages, I couldn't put it down.

About books I review...
I am an author, so I appreciate the value of a 5-star review. I know that those stars mean more to an author, than they do to me as the reviewer who's doling them out. That being said, if I like a book at all, chances are I'm going to give it 5-stars. However, in the detailed description of my review is where I will attempt to explain what I actually thought of the book, so people can get a better idea of exactly how much I liked or loved it.
If I did not enjoy a book, or was unable to finish it, I simply will not review it. I have no interest in bashing anyone else's hard work.
