“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
Girl off the Grid was a fantastic YA book about finding adventure, finding love, and most importantly- finding yourself.
Camille Caldwell is only 18, but she’s already achieved lots. She has a makeup/fashion blog on YouTube that is a huge success and gets a call from one of her favorite magazines, Fashion Forward, for a job. She has the opportunity to go to Costa Rica, but the catch is it’s an eco-trip and she has to be ‘off the grid’. She’ll have a photographer with her (Adam) but she will not have her phone *gasp* or access to any social media. Although that part sounds a little crazy, she can’t pass this opportunity up.
Adam is a bit more serious than Camille. He’s a photographer, and he isn’t sure about taking a job with Fashion Forward (it’s not his thing), but it’s a great opportunity and he loves adventure. So he goes. Camille and Adam but heads a bit when they first meet. Adam has these preconceived notions about who Camille is and what she likes. Slowly but surely, he starts to see the real her.
I love books where the H/h don’t get along at first but slowly start to come around. Camille and Adam go from tolerating each other, to friends, then to more. And as much as I loved the romance aspect of the book and their relationship, I really loved watching Camille’s journey more. I loved her growth and her sense of adventure!
I love Jillian Dodd’s writing. I was hooked on her YA when I read the first KC story. This is her daughters debut novel. Can I just say how much I love that the two of them wrote this book together? The flow of the story was fantastic and I couldn’t tell who wrote what- I love that in a co-written book. Also, they get kudos from me for bringing awareness to some environmental things. After reading this, I want to take an eco-trip!
If you’re looking for a fun YA read that will keep a smile on your face, grab Girl off the Grid!
