I really enjoyed this one. It's a very down to earth accounting of some young adult's experience working in a third world Pacific Island nation, trying to help out as well as assimilate with the natives. The book does a very good job of detailing their experiences and also how the experience living away from their homelands ends up changing them. New relationships are formed, and some are also lost. Ms Morganti has a good command of creative writing,, so the story telling is rich. I would definitely recommend it for young adult to adult readers.
