The review I received was terrific:
Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer (MRhea_MCO)
Fred Squire is not expecting anything special to happen to him during his vacation to the states. He is staying with his parents’ old friends and their daughter, Brittany who is about 14; Fred’s age. His vacation soon grows more interesting as Fred and Brittany become fast friends and are inseparable. Fred soon encounters the problems of being a British boy in America. Struggling to tell the differences in the languages, he records each thing he learns for a school project. But when Fred continually has close calls with the local bully, Steve Harris, and Brit’s too-flirty friend Angel, he sinks deeper into the drama. Brit and Fred’s relationship blossoms regardless of what is happening around them and he soon thinks that nothing bigger can happen, but that’s before he catches a baseball worth thousands of dollars at a baseball game. Fred may be able to avoid flirty girls, fend off a heartless bully, and steer away from scammers out to get the baseball, but there is one thing he knows he cannot stop; having to travel back “across the pond” to his home.
Barry Storyheart did a fabulous job of describing every character and point of view. As soon as I began:”Across the Pond”, I couldn’t set it down. This love story is one of the best I’ve read and I savored every detail I learned about young couple, Fred and Brit. The author threw in details about the difference in American words and British words like a cart in America is a trolley in England. This made it interesting for me to learn about how really different our languages are. “Across the Pond” is a great read and I would recommend it to all young adult readers who like a sweet love story
"Across the Pond" contains some mild language and brief sexual comments.
