"Wanderlove" by Kirsten Hubbard
Need a vacation? But don't have the time or the money to go right now? That's alright just pick up a copy of this book and curl up in a nice comfy chair and let the beautiful writing styling of Kirsten Hubbard take you on a mesmerizing journey into Central America. She will paint such vivid pictures for you with her words that you will feel like you are right there tagging along with 18-year-old Bria as she travels across a 'panorama of Mayan villages, remote Belizean islands, and hostels plagued with jungle beasties.' Even though Hubbard's writing is all you will need, she also lends her own artistry to this book. Her beautifully detailed drawings will only serve to enhance your experience. This is Bria's first time travelling alone. Rowan is an experienced backpacker who takes Bria begrudgingly under his wing. She is a good girl trying to go bad. He is a bad boy trying to stay good. Both are trying to outrun their pasts. Take the journey with them and you too will be wanderfully in love with "Wanderlove."
