And We're Off by Dana Schwartz

Into the Wild

Read And We're Off Online Free - Seventeen-year-old Nora Holmes is an artist, a painter from the moment she could hold a brush. She inherited the skill from her grandfather, Robert, who's always nurtured Nora's talent and encouraged her to follow her passion. Still, Nora is shocked and elated when Robert offers her a gift: an all-expenses-paid summer trip to Europe to immerse herself in the craft and to study history's most famous artists. The only catch? Nora has to create an original piece of artwork at every stop and send it back to her grandfather. It's a no-brainer: Nora is in!

Unfortunately, Nora's mother, Alice, is less than thrilled about the trip. She worries about what the future holds for her young, idealistic daughter and her opinions haven't gone unnoticed. Nora couldn't feel more unsupported by her mother, and in the weeks leading up to the trip, the women are as disconnected as they've ever been. But seconds after saying goodbye to Alice at the airport terminal, Nora hears a voice call out: "Wait! Stop! I'm coming with you!"

There were elements I absolutely loved, but the story itself kind of fell short for me. It would still make a good short summer read if you like anything set in Ireland, though! Nora is a typical upper middle class suburban teen who's leaving for a summer trip to Europe where she'll study in an el...

8.5 out of 10 This was actually pretty good read. No happy-endings, no bad-endings. Just life. RTC.

I received this via GoodReads Giveaways in an exchange for my honest review. All my opinions are my own. ---- Writing 3.5 stars Characters - 3.5 stars Plot 3 stars (Where's the half-stars??? ;-P) --- Right away I liked Nora for being a fellow fangirl... her drawings sound like something I would have lo...

Easy summer read, yes. But I still can't get past the horrible relationship with her mom, how everything just seems to go wrong, and how so many things are just left unfinished at the end. This book definitely could have been longer and explored way more.

Fun summer read about a budding artist trying to spend a summer being artsy and independent, but being thwarted by her mom tagging along. All the characters felt very authentic, the dialogue was very real, and I loved that. Nora, the main character, had a lot of problems, but they were all also v...

Мой отзыв и оценка не будут объективны, учитывая, сколько времени я провела с этой книгой, пропуская через себя каждое слово и эмоцию. И ни капли об этом не жалею. Я безумно рада, что именно она попала в мои руки и очень вовремя! Не знаю, что это: совпадение или судьба, но я не верю в случайности...

Если честно, книга мне понравилась не слишком сильно, хотя я очень ее хотела, и поначалу была просто в восторге. Но сюжет оказался совсем не таким, как я думала и какой хотела. Я поняла мораль этой книги, поняла, чему она должна научить читателя. Но мне было невыносимо читать про девушку, которая н...

Very quick read. This one's tough because I expected more growth from Nora and Alice, and what you get instead is a final chapter resolution with little build-up. The book had little to hold on to other than a few nice moments between the mother and daughter sparsely sprinkled throughout. Plus th...
