When is English not English? Why when it is American of course! Across the Pond is a charming tale of a blossoming romance between young Frederick (Fred, if you please) Squire of England and Brittany (Just Brit and no jokes about it) of America. How does a Squire become a Knight? By saving his Lady Love of course!
When Fred's parents win an Australian trip for two, Fred is given the opportunity to visit family friends in America. Family friends who happen to have a daughter Fred's age and is a real hottie! Fred and Brit are immediately attracted to each other, and Fred finds a trip he was not really looking forward could be the best thing to ever happen to him.
This is a great read for Yound Adult fiction fans. It offers all the humor, angst and innocence of one's first true love. Peppered throughout with the differences in slang used in the USA and England, it is a refreshing twist on a romance novel. I know you will enjoy it, I did!
