Not all those who wander are lost, but Aubree Sadler most definitely is on this novel's whirlwind trip through Europe. A romantic and charming YA debut perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Jenny Han. Aubree can't think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she's ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister, Elizabeth, gets into real trouble, Aubree is talked into taking over Elizabeth's summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour through Europe. Aubree doesn't even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan unravels, leaving her with no phone, no carefully prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour company owner's son, Sam. Considering she's pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn't fall for him, but she can't help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story. But her relationship with Sam is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she's letting both of them down. Aubree knows this trip may show her who she really is--she just hopes she likes where she ends up.… (més)

Charming story and a lot of fun to read. Does a great job of capturing the sister dynamic and the magic of experiencing Europe (and traveling solo) for the first time.

The main character is an intelligent high school senior who is overprotected by her mom and lacks life experience and a lifeview beyond her own perspective. Thrust into a situation in which she has the opportunity to work in Europe for a few weeks, she develops a sense of resourcefulness, empathy, and confidence that she didn't have (or have need of) before.

The one nit I have: there is a senior couple from Dallas who are not just underdeveloped in comparison to the others, but represent the worst stereotypes of Texans. It feels mean-spirited and small-minded, especially because all the other characters are fully developed and sympathetic.

Some free research about Texans for next time, since it appears the author has never bothered to get to know any actual Texans:
- we understand that Spanish is a language and Mexico is a country
- believe it or not, even for Texas, gouda isn't a foreign concept
- men referring to women as the "little lady"... really??

In spite of its lone star hating, Wanderlost bubbles with intelligence, and presents both Aubrey and Sam as a match of equals. Both are special and both have flaws. It's a real and reasonable portrayal of young love that could potentially go the distance. ( )

Rating: 4 Stars

I really liked this book. The plot, most of the characters, and the setting were very well written. It really made me feel as though I wanted to be in Aubree's place. I, personally, have always dreamed of doing a grand tour of Europe. I hope someday I get that chance.

What gives this book 4 stars?
1.) I loved the plot, however it was somewhat slow in hooking me. I found that I would read part of it and then read something else because it didn't grab me in the very beginning. I also thought that Aubree was very immature in the beginning, wining about having to take her sister's place. In my opinion, she should have been thrilled, given the circumstance surrounding her opportunity, to go to Europe period.
2.) I loved the setting. I thought the author did a good job of describing each place. Her descriptions really made me feel as though I was there.
3.) I loved all the characters. I especially loved the seniors, I adored all their quirks and personalities. Sam, was the total dream boy, perfect in every possible way. If only boys in reality could be like fictional Sam. Aubrey, was very annoying in the beginning, but towards the middle and end of the story, I actually really liked her and how she was being more mature.

All in all, a good read. I liked it! ( )

This was everything I want my young adult contemporary reads to be. It was adorable, sweet, and a quick read. I know a contemporary is perfect when I am truly smiling, in real life, for over half the book. The romance was super sweet, but not the focus the story. I loved the travel aspects. ( )
