Read a book on the trials and adventures of a Christian-American twelfth grade girl, living in Europe as an exchange student for one year. There are times when the adrenaline is high as well as times of loneliness and culture shock. During the course of the exchange year, Christy found herself dealing with newfound independence, the death of four loved ones, isolation from others reacting to her faith, changing host families and schools, and ultimately falling in love. All of the emotions, challenges and discoveries of the exchange year are shared through diary entries, letters, pictures and poems.
This Book depicts the teenage perspective of the exchange student transformation process. The reader is not only drawn into the story, but gains insight to some of the travel highlights, cultural differences, financial preparation and daily living skills that could help to ensure positive intercultural experiences.
