“Taking Tuscany” is the second novel in the trilogy from David C. Cook Publishers
Spend a whole year in Tuscany with the entertaining Degulio family. What could be more fun than inheriting a crumbling castle on a hill with a cracked swimming pool? Or having your mother put on a mock Winter Olympics for the entire neighborhood--until A.J.'s sled hits that jump going a little too fast.... It's the perfect story to curl up with in front of a warm fire on a cold night ...
14 year-old A.J. may not agree that it's the perfect story, however. She's had to move away from her beloved Indian Island and her dog, Sailor --not to mention her best friend, Danny Morgan. A.J. ends up half way around the world in Tuscany, Italy. And, she is far from thrilled about it. Thank goodness for Ceasar the horse, Napoleon the dog, and a few interesting characters living in the hills near her villa. Between nutty relatives and Italian culture A.J. finds some pretty humorous ways to try and navigate her way back to the island she longs for. And she might learn a few things about life and perspective along the way.
Taking Tuscany, based on another true story . . . sort of.
