Review:Sophomore Year is Greek to Me

 Title:Sophomore Year is  Greek to Me
 Release Date :April 21st 2015         
 Publisher:G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers 

A laugh-out-loud high school adventure set in Greece, perfect for fans of Meg Cabot 
High school sophomore Zona Lowell has lived in New York City her whole life, and plans to follow in the footsteps of her renowned-journalist father. But when he announces they’re moving to Athens for six months so he can work on an important new story, she's devastated— he must have an ulterior motive. 

See, when Zona's mother married an American, her huge Greek family cut off contact. But Zona never knew her mom, and now she’s supposed to uproot her entire life and meet possibly hostile relatives on their turf? Thanks... but no thanks.


I adored Freshman year and other Natural Disasters it cracked me up from start to finish so I couldn't wait to read Sophomore Year is  Greek to Me when I first hear it was coming out way back when. I read this book a few years ago and I have no idea why it took me so long to write this review... The reason I am finally doing this review is  because I just reread both Freshman year and other Natural Disasters and Sophomore Year Is Greek to Me.

Sophomore Year Is Greek to Me emphasizes the importance of family & of finding your place in the world This book was literally lovely as hell. Just like Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters this book was full of nonstop laughter and some series sweet moment.  Zona always seems to be getting into some ridiculous situation or another... Whether she's being attacked by birds or stranded with inappropriate footwear, there is never a dull moment. The characters especially Zona and her dad really were well written and I loved the relationships between the two.

The cover fits this book perfectly.I think it's simple but fun and evokes that summer feel.The vibrant cover plus title will lure you in especially if your one of those people who picks up a book based on it cover. This book a great read and it talks about stuff that you can relate too. I highly recommend  this book!!! 4/5
