“Disappearing-Act Dad (D.A.D. for short) has lived up to his name and down to my expectations. Again. It doesn’t matter, though. I’m nearly eighteen years old. I’m independent and perfectly able to cope. I am also in a foreign country, alone and terrified.”
Ellie is supposed to be spending summer in Italy with her estranged dad. But where is he? Who is she actually living with?
And then there’s a boy. There’s always a boy. Ellie is so over them. If only the air wasn’t filled with romance… and chocolate . . .
