Wanderlost is a really fun read. Aubree has just graduated from high school, but she’s never been anywhere. She’s set to start college in the fall in her hometown. Her sister, Elizabeth, the perfect one, gets arrested for hosting underage drinkers at Aubree’s graduation party. When she concocts a crazy plan to have Aubree to fill in for her as a tour guide in Europe for the summer, Aubree is less than thrilled. But feeling responsible for her sister’s situation, she reluctantly agrees.
Aubree is soon in Europe with a Spanish-speaking bus driver and a small group of senior citizens who are expecting her to lead them on a 3-week adventure. After losing her sister’s meticulous notes, she’s winging things and solving her own problems for the first time in her life. Enter cute boy…Sam, the tour company’s son, and this story is complete.
I loved the romance. I loved the old people. They brought such great comic relief and insight into Aubree’s experience. Aubree herself was a little annoying at times, but she had some good character growth. The plot was a bit far fetched, but still super cute. I loved reading about the different locations, especially The Sound of Music impromptu tour experience.
If you’re looking for a light summer read, this book is a perfect choice.
