This would be a good holiday book, enough funny moments to be lighthearted but the author does try to include serious issues. I like the way she handles Israel, although it's a dangerous place we are reminded that the young people who live there are still ordinary people with the same the worries as American/English etc At the same time Amy, our main character, realises that her life isn't as tough as she thought, she doesn't have to join the army for two years or shear sheep! There are some nice romantic moments and I liked the growing relationship with her father.
All in all, a nice book for young adults :)

Very good!!!!Reviewed in Germany on 18 November 2016
I really enjoyed reading this book! And I'm looking forward to reading the next two books. I've read it in German (my native language) before but it's not that hard to understand if English is not your native language!!
