I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Finley Sinclair, little sister of Alex Sinclair (from Save the Date) travels to Ireland as a foreign exchange student where she hopes to change into someone better someone her old brother Will who was tragically taken away from them would be proud of. When Will was her age he went to Ireland where he fall in love with the place and found God, Finley decides she will follow in her brothers footsteps, seeing everything he saw. Armed with only Will’s journal and the rest of the school year Finley will see and do it all.

But Finley has so much going on in her life, she is still dealing with the lost of Will, she feels God has stopped speaking to her, she has an audition for a music school in NYC, her performance piece still isn’t finished, and she’s trying to deal with the stress of it all.

On the plane Finley ends up sitting next to Beckett Rush, super movie star and Irish hottie but much to Beckett’s surprise Finley could give two flying pigs about who he is or what he does. Not used to that at all Beckett takes a liking to Finley and feels he can form a real friendship with her. Through a list of funny ways Beckett becomes Finley’s tour guide through Ireland, where not only a friendship blossoms but maybe something more. 

I loved this book. It was filled with a great mixed group of characters some nice and some less than so. Every character in the book good or bad had a role to play, one that made the book so much better. I knew going into this book it was going to be so much more than some young adult romance, I knew it was going to be deep and heartfelt, and I was right. I finished it in one seating, only a two hours. Jenny B. Jones take a storyline and makes it so much more. As I've said before I don't read Christian book but this author is amazing and this book can make anyone relate to it. It was funny, sad, deep, happy, and just plain ole good. 

What I love the most that the fact that you didn't have to read Save the Date in order to understand what was going on, it stood out on its own. I'd recommend this book to any and everyone. 

Also if you haven't read Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones, which is the tale of Finley's older brother Alex, Will's twin, you should. You can read my review here.
