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.

About the Author:

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Saskia E. Akyil, like many writers over the age of 25, began her art by keeping a journal and writing letters to her friends, pen-pals, cousins, and grandparents. After receiving a B.A. in International Studies from Emory University and an M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) from the University of Minnesota, her writing took on a more formal tone as she wrote articles for academic publications. She gained incredibly diverse experiences while simultaneously working three jobs in Olympia, Washington; as a community college ESL professor for immigrants, as a state program administrator for displaced homemakers, and as a Spanish-language medical interpreter. She has also taught numerous cooking classes in the United States and in Germany. As a hobby, she collects languages, and has studied French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Turkish, and German. She left her jobs behind in 2005 when she moved to Munich, Germany with her husband and proceeded to have two sons, who inspire and exhaust her, and never cease to make her laugh.

Review:

"Akyil's charming, well-developed female characters are the foundations of this novel... the plot is swift and sure....and the book's ending begs for a sequel.  Fans of Brashares' Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series will enjoy this romantic tale of cultural exchange on the western shores of Turkey." - Kirkus Reviews
