Publisher's Summary

A summer in Italy turns into a road trip across Tuscany in this sweeping debut novel filled with romance, mystery, and adventure.
Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn't in the mood for Italy's famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She's only there because it was her mother's dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn't around for 16 years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.
But then Lina is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina's uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother's footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept from Lina for far too long. It's a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father - and even herself.
People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more.

Enjoyed this cotton candy YA story!

This is a journey of a 16-year old girl trying to puzzle some pieces in Italy. She ends up finding more than she expected when she reads her deceased mother's journal. I enjoy books that highlight touristy sites in other countries. This is age-appropriate, no foul language, there is kissing and one fade-to-black scene written in the mother's journal. I took 1 star from Story because I wish things had been different for the mother. I do recommend this YA for a credit.
