    • I m kind of biased because I could really relate to Arden Not so much her personality but her situation I ve had a parent deploy to Iraq and I understood a lot of what she had to go through, but I didn t take it the same way she did Arden is already away at college when her mom is deployed and she has already lost her father, so she dealing with a lot of feelings that seem to be suffocating her though she doesn t know it With all that moving around military brats do it s hard to keep many friend [...]


    • This is hard for me to review because I liked the book, but I think it was mostly because I could relate to Arden s situation At times it was sad and in Arden s voice you can hear the weight of the world that she feels like she s carrying Then you see all the great things she does and sees while she traveling The book was pretty accurate when describing how travel is in Europe as in it kinda sucks It was funny to read the military jargon that I only hear when I m on post or talking to my family [...]


    • There are not many books that I ve read about military brats so this was different It was nice to see her knowledge of everthing in Europe but she wasn t snobish about it In the beginning I just felt so bad for Arden I d hate to be stuck in Paris and not have any fun However things do get better as things progress The three girls she meets on the plane and decides to join have very distinct personalities Each one brings something to the story The military life has seemed to take a great toll on [...]


    • When I started High Dive, we were at weird time, nationally speaking The Iraq War was going strong and military families experienced huge personal sacrifices But while the media did a superb job getting the story out about the soldiers experiences at war and the casualty rate was common knowledge, the pain and suffering of the spouses and children left behind was completely unacknowledged I had to change that I was that child whose father left to go to war I was that spouse left behind on a six [...]

    • Few books have ever evoked the sense of nostalgia that this book gave me Reading of Arden s travels through Paris and then Italy made me think back fondly to the semester I spent abroad in Europe To be honest, I was not expecting much from this book However, this book surprised me immensely While a quick, light read, High Dive is truly a coming of age story that explores adulthood and independence I would definitely recommend this book.WHAT I LIKED Arden was a character that made it very easy to [...]


    • Arden is a character with wit, intelligence, and adventure driven Stein writes a fast paced but descriptive story of a girl who goes out of her way to take on an adventure in Europe with three strangers The book is well written and perfectly paced, and Stein does not dwell on details but inserts enough to make the story colorful and vivid The entire plot hinges on one character choosing adventure, and from there, the story unfolds to develop her character and her story past to present The charac [...]

    • I thought this would be a foodie book for teensbut not quite It is much a book about traveling and dealing with a parent who has died or one in Iraq Stein also explores the dynamics of growing up in a military family.Not bad, but just not great There definitely isn t enough suspense or tension indeed, there isn t any at all to make it a plot driven story But one feels short changed on the character development end of the story.


    • This book is about a girl who is traveling to visit her mother and meets these other girls They invite her to go to Paris, france with her and she says yes They go on different adventures This book is about them.I can make a connection because if i were in this situation it would be hard I would not know what to or how i should let my parents know and also i wouldn t know if i should trust the people inviting me I most likely wouldn t go.


    • Arden, a college student, has lost her dad and her mother is a solder nurse in Iraq This story follows Arden as she makes an impulsive decision to vacation with three other college girls in Europe It does a good job highlighting the pain of not being with both parents In addition, a book that takes you through Europe with four girls, and the problems fun they encounter.


    • I thought this book was going to be different I couldn t connect or empathize with the main character I thought it would be about traveling and doing different things Europe but instead it kept informing me of how long the wait time was at museums and how expensive Paris was.


    • Why 5 stars DetailsRealistic contemporary military issues I teared up couple of timesMessage for every reader focus on what you can controlI connected I m a parent of swimmers I was a military wife I have close family suffering from deployments to Iraq.



    • I liked this book About a girl who s father recently passed away and her mother is in Iraq On a flight she meets 3 girls from Texas who talk her into joing them in Paris.


    • Good book to better understand the feelings of a child of a soldier during war Add to it the child has lost a parent and is trying to deal with this loss all alone Enjoyable and realistic.
