Perfect contemporary YA summer read

Wanderlost - Jen Malone

I had good fun previewing an advance reader copy of Jen Malone’s WANDERLOST. It’s the perfect contemporary YA summer read: light, breezy, funny, and filled with sightseeing for the vicarious traveler. The lovable Aubree Sadler goes on a whirlwind trip through Europe, taking over her older sister’s summer job as the tour leader for a group of senior citizens. She complicates things when she also pretends to be her sister, and the problems snowball from there. The tour company owner’s son Sam is particularly well depicted and good for several laughs. Complete with charming romantic interest, mistaken identity, dreamy settings, and a few plot twists that ask for a suspension of disbelief with a wink, WANDERLOST is an entertaining read that’s told with a delightful voice.
