Description
Can coffee grounds tell your future? Will fate bring you to your soul mate thousands of miles from home? How will you know if it's him? Would the evil eye dare stop two souls on their paths to each other? A last-minute opportunity to spend a month with a Turkish family on the Aegean coast drastically changes the course of seventeen-year-old Rachel Guo’s summer. This intercultural coming-of-age novel is full of exotic tastes, summer heat, promises kept and broken, and love. In a summer village on the western coast of Turkey, you’ll meet Rachel, who doesn’t know what she wants; Aylin, who doesn’t know if she wants the one who wants her; and Leyla, who knows who she wants, but doesn’t know if she’ll get him. Love and romance are secret pleasures in the summer village, which only make them more exciting. Travel with Rachel on her journey far from the comforts of home, to a place that will captivate her and leave her changed forever.
