Description
Dear Diary, You will never in a million years guess where I'm going....Italy In Europe Across the ocean I even have a passport. It's really cool, except I'm squinting my eyes in the photo, so I look like a dork. At least that's what my brother said. I call him Matt the Brat. You would too. Trust me....
When Melanie Martin heads to Italy on a family vacation with her art-obsessed mom, her grumpy dad, and her little brother, she has no idea what she's in for. As she discovers Michelangelo, Italian ice cream, and poetry, she also realizes how much her family means to her. Maybe she won't trade them in after all.
