Spannend boek waarin je wordt meegsleurd. Ik vond het alleen vervelend dat de hoofdstukken vrij kort waren. ( )

Emilia December de Wit is from the Netherlands, is an extreme germaphobe and is on the run! After her father becomes embroiled in scandal back home she runs away to escape the media attention thrust on her and she travels to New York City by herself. After a huge mishap with where she is supposed to stay she quickly realizes she is alone, broke and homeless in a huge city. She ends up making friends with model-level handsome Jim, Seth Greenberg and his little sister Abby (who allow her to stay in their apartment while their mom is out of town). While Emilia works out what to do next she and her new friends get caught in the madness that is Hurricane Sandy, which is now bearing down on NYC. They all become closer throughout the ordeal as they bond over their shared experiences. Can Emilia forgiver her father and come to terms with her life back home? While the plot is quite improbable it was still a fun, quick read that is perfect for teens. The characters are all well developed and quirky making this an interesting read while introducing teens to the complexities of growing up and understanding that adults especially parents are not perfect!

Een lekker lezend YA-boek over een meisje dat alleen naar New York vliegt en daar al snel vrienden maakt als gevolg van de orkaan Sandy. Het is spannend geschreven, helemaal van deze tijd, maar niet erg realistisch. Wel een leuk gegeven. ( )

When Emilia de Wit ran away to New York City, she planned everything to a T. Plane ticket, purchased. Cute apartment, rented online. Subway map, printed and highlighted. This was no ordinary trip -- this was Emilia's declaration of independence. Her chance to escape the life her parents were ruining. To get away from the horrible scandal that had rocked Amsterdam, the scandal that was all her dad's fault. To see if her mom, the glamorous, world-famous artist, would even notice.
