Goodreads Synopsis:
Shana has always had a blind spot for boys. Can she trust the one who's right in front of her?

Sixteen-year-old Shana Wilde is officially on a Boy Moratorium. After a devastating breakup, she decides it's time to end the plague of Mr. Wrong, Wrong, and More Wrong.

Enter Quattro, the undeniably cute lacrosse player who slams into Shana one morning in Seattle. Sparks don't just fly; they ignite. And so does Shana's interest. Right as she's about to rethink her ban on boys, she receives crushing news: Her dad is going blind. Quattro is quickly forgotten, and Shana and her parents vow to make the most of the time her father has left to see. So they travel to Machu Picchu, and as they begin their trek, they run into none other than Quattro himself. But even as the trip unites them, Quattro pulls away mysteriously... Love and loss, humor and heartbreak collide in this new novel from acclaimed author Justina Chen

My Thoughts:
This was a nice read. A well written contemporary that teaches you to live life to the fullest no matter what life throws your way. You do not know what tomorrow will bring. 

This book was peaceful. That is the best way that I can describe it. It was not an in your face emotional roller coaster but more of a slow build up that catches you off guard. The subtle undertone worked well for this book.

Shana has been hurt in the past and she has done everything that she can to keep her heart from being crushed again. She dates, sure, but she has vowed never to fall in love. But then she meets Quattro and all of that flies out the window. When a chance meeting halfway around the world brings these two together, they go on an amazing journey together. This vacation will change Shana forever.

This was a great coming of age story. Finding oneself and not allowing the bad moments in life to define you.
True love is NOT a fairy tale. It is tough and sad and it takes hard work but that does not mean you stop yourself from loving or being loved.  

I really enjoyed this one. It was very inspirational.
