This was the summer reading I was looking for.

Bria leaves for a tour of Central America searching for adventure after a break up with her boyfriend. Instead she finds herself surrounded by middle aged stick-in-the-muds. When a couple of real backpackers invite her to travel with them, she starts to take life into her own hands and risk being happy.

Here’s why I like this book. I’m not an adventurous person. I want to travel, but on my terms, with plans and hotels and reservations. I’ve never been interested in Central America. And after reading this, I’m about ready to pick up a backpack and head south.

The adventures and the scenery sound incredible. And Bria makes some huge changes as a character. She grows up and starts to move beyond her hurt and her dysfunctional relationships and finds herself in a way she never expected.

This is a great book for a day off, relaxing with a cup of tea. Or if you’re more adventurous than I am it would be great to take with you too.
