Title: Narvla’s Celtic New Year
Rating: 4 stars
Publisher: Lynne Therese Gilardi; 1 edition
Narvla’s Celtic New Year is a teen novel about Narvla who is an American teen who’s mother becomes the American Ambassador to Ireland. Moving to Ireland is not something that Narvla wanted wanted to do during her senior year of high school. She is a step dancer with dreams of attending her dream University Notre Dame. She feels out of place in Ireland because she’s an American, but when she meets Dublin Boy AKA Colin a teenage boy who plays guitar in the park next to the American Embassy. With all those things stacked against her she sees her dreams slipping away.
But will living in Ireland for a year give her new dreams? Or will living in Ireland lead her to finding herself, and learning to be true to herself.
Narvla’s Celtic New Year to me is more than just a teen fiction novel set in Ireland it is a teen travel novel that is above anything else about finding yourself and following your dreams. And the friendships that are forged along the way.
Once I discovered the book was set in Ireland I knew I had to read. I love books set in Ireland, and the fact that this was a teen book was another plus. This was only the third teen book that I read set in Ireland. There doesn’t seem to be that many books set in Ireland for teens and there needs to be. This is also the first book that I’ve read by Lynne Therese Gilardi but it will not be the last.
I received this e-book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
