Still, a free trip to Europe is surely worth a bit of drama, isn't it? But as she and her father explore Amsterdam and get to know each other again over dark coffee and Belgian beer, Junior begins to question what she thought she knew about her family-and herself. Could this turn out to be a good year, though one of the hardest, after all?

This is such a beautiful story about finding oneself by staying true to what you love. This young woman overcomes many obstacles by suffering through the realities of growing up a lesbian in a very real and believable story. I loved the book and would highly recommend it.
Elizabeth is asked by her father to join her on a business trip. Shebthoughtbit was all business, she was wrong. This was a wonderful tale of a girl coming to terms with personal issues and rekindling an estranged relationship with her father. Elizabeth takes us on a tour of Belgium and Holland. If you have ever been there, the places mentioned will be familiar. This was a book you could climb into and travel with the main character Elizabeth. What is more important is she realizes that her father is proud of her and who she has become. The other characters are equally as lovable and you get to know ol' Fitzy personally. I felt as if I had known the people all my life. It was a beautifully written story not to be missed. Enjoy.
