A Perfect Read For All Ages!, February 27, 2009
By A. Pohren "http://cafeofdreams.blogspot.com/" (IA United States) - See all my reviews
Ok, so this may be dubbed as a "young adult" romance novel, but I, at 34, gobbled it up and loved it! I simply adored the characters of 15 year old English born Fred, Brittany, the daughter of the couple he is staying with while visiting in America, as well as the couple themselves, Phil and Julie. The author did a phenomenal job of bringing each and every one to life ,through descriptions, actions and dialog.
This is a delightful story of acceptance, standing up for what is right, selflessness and first love. I can honestly say that I cannot think of a single thing that I did not like about Across the Pond. As an extra added piece of fun (and education) Fred must work on a school project, while in America, listing some of the language differences he comes across in everyday conversation. I found this to be quite interesting. Though I have heard some of the terms, several were new to me and fun to learn.
Fred quickly becomes Brit's Knight, helping her work through emotions and bringing justice, for her, for a past trauma. Fred is a very kind, generous and admirable charater that the reader falls in love with, from the very beginning. There is never a lull in the story and at the end, I was left wanting more! Perhaps an additional story will come about with Brit visiting Fred in England?! *hint hint, Mr Eva, lol!
Though geared toward young adult, I honestly believe this is a marvelous story for any age. It is sure to bring a smile to the face and a warmth to the heart.

A wonderful story of love and chivalry, February 27, 2009
By Cherie L. Klavitter "Cherie71" (Phoenix, AZ USA) - See all my reviews
This story was very beautifully written. The language is descriptive enough that you can imagine yourself in the midst of the story. Although at times it seems the author loses track of the time continuum, the story manages to maintain its integrity as a wonderful tale of young love. A teenage boy who is shipped "Across The Pond" against his will who finds that the whole experience is not so bad after all. He quickly discovers that Americans, even with their "odd" version of English, are a very fun and fun-loving people. It was nice to read a story about just two regular kids with regular every day and current "kid" problems. Thank you for allowing me to preview this book. I spent a wonderful hour and half immersed in the teenage world of American Tourism and young love.
I started working on my blog radio producing a practice blog today, the blog radio is now being called “Let’s Chat About It”. I need to practice a little more before becoming a stop for virtual tours.
