Description
A bohemian Brooklyn teen crosses the pond to visit an uptight English family in the hilarious companion to SOPHIE PITT-TURNBULL DISCOVERS AMERICA.
The exchange of daughters that began in SOPHIE-PITT TURNBULL DISCOVERS AMERICA continues Excited (not to say desperate) as Cherokee Salamanca is to get out of Brooklyn, she starts having doubts about her summer in London even before she leaves Heathrow Airport. To start with, the Pitt- Turnbulls speak a language only vaguely like the one Cherokee knows as English. And then Putney reminds her of New Jersey -- an oddly polite Jersey where people eat pizza with a fork. But Cherokee is a girl who likes a challenge, and there's no way she's going to let the British defeat her. The question is: will she conquer the British?
