Book Review - Across the Pond by Storyheart

Across the Pond by Storyheart is a cute teenage story about a boy from England who visits a family friend in the United States. I have to say I LOVED this story! It was very cute and completely believable. The main characters Fred and Brittany and wholesome teenagers going through life and dealing with typical teenage issues. Doesn't matter he is from England and she is from the United States. This book reminds me of books I read as a teenager and loved.

I only had one problem with the book. There was a BIG continuity problem between Chapters 12 and 13. The author actually repeats the motions of the family waking up in the morning and going to the baseball game. There is also a change in some of the events going to the baseball game (Fred talking about the game of Cricket and not). Other than that. I really enjoyed this book. I can completely see a sequel happening. The author ended the novel with you wanting more. I was satisfied with the ending but if there was a sequel, I wouldn't complain. ;)

Thank you so much for the review I am so glad you liked it. Yes the chaps 12/13 were missed by the editor, and have now been fixed in a fresh release. I am so glad you enjoyed it.

Once again thank you

Oh forgot, yes there is a sequel underway, with an idea from a third on the mental back burner.

Sequel is called "Across the Pond and Back Again" and carries on from where the first one stops, with Brit this time going to England. the third? Well there is always Angel ;)
