Surprising amount of personal growth and reflection for what I thought was a beach read set in Israel. Great!

After perusing a few negative reviews, I hesitated beginning this one. I'm so glad that I persevered. I truly enjoyed the story, the humor, the romance, and the foreign locales. Yes, Amy acted like a spoiled brat at times, but I recognize this behavior in many self-entitled teens. I think it was realistic behavior of a 16 year old who has lived a spoiled life and feels slighted by a rarely-there father. You get to see somewhat of a turn-around in her behavior and hopefully even more in subsequent books. As for the romance, I can see the allure of a cute American girl to Israelian teen boys, regardless of her entitled behavior. For me, this was a realistic account of the beginning of a girls transformation after learning more about her heritage and faith. The added romance and humor was a beautiful bonus.

Very entertaining book. Amy's personality definitely shows through the writing. I plan on reading the rest of the series.
