About this deal

Dax’s dual enrollment meant that we only went to the same school part of the time, and already he dictated most of our social life.

He’s also incredibly awkward around her and she finds it only easy to talk to him when they’re with other people. She then arrived in the beautiful country, reunited with her father, met new people, including his father's assistant, Theo, and most importantly, she discovered… a lot. The descriptions in this had me looking up pictures of things like the Red Beach, the White Beach, the beautiful turquoise water, and just all of it. At first it was off putting because it made it a little too fantastical for me, but I ended up loving it!Today he’d gone all out in the costume department: a mask, two plastic katanas, and our mom’s black bathrobe. Liv soon learns that her father has a chance to film a documentary about Atlantis for National Geographic, and he’s brought her to Greece to be his art director. The other characters were also all very lovable (except Dex) and I loved seeing Liv grow so much in just 10 days.

Her dad’s teenage film assistant, Theo, helps Liv navigate these feelings, while the two try to calm the chemistry between them. First of all, I love that Welch has a completely different setting for each of her books, and this one takes place in Greece!

The ending did make me feel emotional and I could see the outline of what was a beautiful story, however. Liv finds this sort of mortifying, so when a postcard arrives from her father Nico inviting her to spend her birthday with him in Santorini, Liv is like “that’s gonna be a no for me dawg. Liv Varanakis doesn’t like to think of her father much, which makes sense—he fled to Greece when she was only eight, leaving her with just a few painful memories of their shared love for the lost city of Atlantis. I got bored at the halfway point and just wanted questions answered and this just seemed to drag on.
