Publisher's Summary

It's the summer before senior year of high school. It's supposed to be one of the biggest summers of her life, but Pippa is headed to an art program she has no interest in. The one saving grace is that it's in Italy. And when the opportunity strikes, she decides to ditch the program and travel around Italy accomplishing her own list of goals - things like swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, eating a whole pizza in one sitting… and falling in love with an Italian boy!
As she explores the famous cities of Rome and Pompeii, Pippa finds herself falling for two boys: a local guy she knows is nothing but trouble and a cute American archaeology student who keeps disappearing and reappearing at the strangest moments. Will Pippa find her true love before her parents find out the truth about her summer program?

Makes me want to fall in love and go to Italia!

If you could sum up Wish You Were Italian in three words, what would they be?

Magical, Special & Entertaining

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wish You Were Italian?

There are many in this book. From how the author describes Italy, the relationship of the main character with her family and friends. The surprise ending!

What does Sandy Rustin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The way she narrates the story makes you want to come back to it if you put the story down for a seconds. It makes you think you are there with the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't in the sense that I didn't want it to end, I was so engaged in the story and wondering how the love story would end. This is a TEEN book but it was just what I was looking for.
A bit of eat pray love in a TEEN novel.

Any additional comments?

Wish the author did part 2, so we know how the love story ends :)
