Aunt Sid invites Maddie to tag along while she's off in Ireland on assignment, along with Ryan -- the cute guy about the same age as nine-teen year old Maddie.
While riding a plane for the first time kinda freaks her out, Maddie discovers Ireland to be a beautiful place -- with some old, tired mysteries inside.
This is one of the, "Wow. What a great book. It was so real." An authentically good book. As in, I finished the book wishing I could visit Ireland. The characters were fun, realistic and the plot was interesting and new. Being judgemental was one of the issues focused on, in an "Oh I can totally get that" kind of way. You'll find yourself agreeing and disagreeing, and generally just wanting to be in on the adventure.
I would definitely recommend this book. And the best news? You can find it insanely cheap -- I mean, $5.00. For a good book.
I'm SO ready to buy book number two in the series and join Maddie and everyone in Papua New Guinea!
