Review: Its a wonderful life by Jesse Goossens

Dutch almost-eighteen-year-old Anna is not allowed to go on a Spanish beach vacation with her friends. Instead her parents send her to small town in America to spend the summer with her uncle. To pass the time, Anna starts working in an antique shop where she befriends different kinds of people ranging from the local undertaker--a boy her age--to an elderly Jewish couple. Anna could never have imagined that what she thought would be the dullest holiday ever would turn out to be a time where she discovers what life is about.
Seeing Anna goes from Europe to Pennsylvania was interesting to read about. How she had to adjust to changes and make new friends. She had to interact with different sorts of poeple who would become her friends after ahe felt betrayed.

  1. The transition alone to America for a teenager would make such an interesting story. This sounds good.
