An exciting new series from the acclaimed author of Red Glass.

Zeeta’s life with her free-spirited mother, Layla, is anything but normal. Every year Layla picks another country she wants to live in. This summer they’re in Ecuador, and Zeeta is determined to convince her mother to settle down. Zeeta makes friends with vendors at the town market and begs them to think of upstanding, “normal” men to set up with Layla.

There, Zeeta meets Wendell. She learns that he was born nearby, but adopted by an American family. His one wish is to find his birth parents, and Zeeta agrees to help him. But when Wendell’s biological father turns out to be involved in something very dangerous, Zeeta wonders whether she’ll ever get the chance to tell her mom how she really feels—or to enjoy her deepening feelings for Wendell.

    " I loved Resau's previous book, Red Glass, but this one didn't resonate with me in the same way. I still enjoyed her writing, but felt far more disconnected from the characters and events of the story. I was also a little annoyed to see at the end that it's going to be a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 12/26/2013

    " A book with a flaky artist mom who quotes Rumi every five seconds, what's not to like about that? Zeeta's voice rings absolutely true, and the trajectory of growth for her during the course of this novel is excellently done. Resau's a good writer and a canny plotter. Her characters are very real and for me, very easy to love. I enjoyed this one very much, and am off to read the next one now. "

    " Pretty good, but I liked Red Glass better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexa | 7/25/2013

    " Not enough action for my book club girls. But I quite liked it! An adventure in Ecuador, which the reader gets to experience as an insider--as someone who speaks 7 languages like the ever-traveling Zeeta. Though Zeeta's emotional growth is somewhat predictable, it was also very satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 7/20/2013

    " This book was pitch perfect. The romance, spiritualism, mystery, cultural exploration was perfectly executed. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tan | 5/4/2011

    " Great novel about what it is to be normal, about how our parents influence us and how we influence them. I loved the dynamic between Zeeta and her mother, and all of the people she meets on her adventures.

    I would definitely pick up another in this series. "

    " I also read "What the Moon Saw," which is also by Laura Resau. Both books were good, but way too similar!! They had basically the same plot line and characters!!! Therefor, I'd just pick one and read it. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was well-written with a very good pace. I tend to be drawn to books about travel/adventure, with eccentric characters and this book was full of both. "
