From the Review Pile #8


This is a meme I participate in called From the Review Pile, hosted by Stepping Out of the Page. Basically it is a meme, where you pick one book (or two!) that you have been meaning to read/review for a while, but haven't yet gotten around to it. It will also give the book some extra publicity. :)

This week I am showcasing Dante's Girl by Courtney Cole! Oh. My. Gosh. I was lying in bed last night and decided to just turn my phone on quick to see if I got any more emails...yes, yes I did. Netgalley had accepted my request to read Dante's Girl. I was like this:
baby gets excited over dog
Seriously, that's how excited I was. I might bump this up to the top of my review pile...>.<

Dante's Girl by Courtney Cole 
Dante's Girl
I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring. Until this year. 
And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things:
1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes. 2. If I hear the phrase, “You’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac.3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish.4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean paradise. 5. See number four above. Because it brings with it a whole slew of problems and I’ve learned something from every one of them.
Let’s start with the fact that Dante’s world is five light-years away from mine. He goes to black-tie functions and knows the Prime Minister of England on a first name basis. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas and wear cut-off jeans paired with cowboy boots. See the difference? 
But hearts don’t care about differences. Hearts want what they want. And mine just wants to be Dante’s girl. 
My heart just might be crazy.
