Ireland (#01 in Notes From A Spinning Planet Series)

$17.99

Paperback
It's pretty humiliating to admit, but I've never flown in a plane before today. So wouldn't you think that I'd be feeling pretty jazzed right now? Instead I keep grabbing onto these armrests as I ask myself why on earth I ever agreed to come on this frightening trip.. . .

Affectionately teased as a "country bumpkin," nineteen year-old Maddie has never been one to explore new territory. Her first trip outside of the country with her Aunt Sid and Sid's godson, Ryan, promises an exhilarating adventure. Northern Ireland is more captivating than she even imagined-and Ryan is offering plenty of intrigue himself.

As Aunt Sid researches peace camps, Maddie and Ryan explore Ireland's rich landscape. During the journey, Maddie begins to discover more about what she wants from life, while developing a deeper friendship with her irresistible travelling companion.

When Maddie and Ryan dig for the truth about the IRA car bomb that killed Ryan's father years ago, questions about the past accumulate. Unable to let go of growing suspicions in this mysterious country, Maddie finds herself on a dangerous journey, a journey that will lead her to the greatest discovery of all.

- Publisher Traveling in Ireland with her journalist aunt and the charming Ryan, her aunt's godson, nineteen-year-old Maddie unearths the secret behind an Irish Republican Army bombing decades earlier, and the impact it has had on Ryan's and Aunt Sid's lives.

Teenage Reading
4 stars By Kimberley, May 14 2016
I hadn't read this series by Melody Carlson before. I love a lot of the other books that she has written so I was excited to read this. It didn't really live up to my expectations. This may be because the book was aimed at readers who were just out of highschool. As I am older it didn't really apply to me. The book was still good but I didn't enjoy it as much as I felt that it was a little young for me.
