Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PS
Overshadowed by her other siblings, Elena
feels like she never stands out. So she takes a
once in a lifetime opportunity to study for a
semester in San Sebastian, Spain. In Spain, she
quickly becomes friends with outgoing Jenna,
which leads her to experience many new things in
Spain, from visiting Tapas bars to relaxing on
the beach everyday. But Elena also has her
playwriting on her mind as she wants her play to
be selected to be performed for the school.
Adding to her stress is the cute boy, Miguel, she
has her eyes on. But when Elena meets her
namesake, her great aunt Elena, things seem to
make sense, and Elena learns that she shouldn't
feel hidden by other people.
I thought that this book was cute. I love
reading books that take place in other countries,
so I loved the descriptions of San Sebastian and
Madrid. I think that there was a good mix of
everything in this book, romance, culture,
suspense. I was a bit disappointed in the ending.
But overall, I enjoyed reading this book. As this
is only one of the books in the Students Across
the Seven Seas series, I look forward to reading
the others soon.
