Mia is a junior now and while she is saddled with Precalculus and Ms. Martinez the unsupportive English teacher, she is excited about the new school year. That is until Michael drops a bomb on her—he is moving to Japan, immediately.
Over the summer Michael built a prototype of a robotic arm that could revolutionize heart surgery and a Japanese company wants him to oversee the building of a working model. It is a great opportunity and he will get course credit, but he will also have to be gone for at least a year. Obviously, this news sends Mia in a tailspin. To keep him in the country, she even seeks out Grandmere’s advice—that’s how desperate she is. Of course this advice is a step that Mia isn’t sure that she is ready for, but if it can keep him in the country she will consider it.
I’m not going to lie; there is quite a lot of drama in this one. Mia really isn’t equipped to deal with something like this and she has never been really good at taking sound advice. I still liked this one, but would recommend reading the next part right after, the ending to this book is a little upsetting.
