When Irish Guys Are Smiling by Suzanne Supplee

Back Cover: For seventeen-year-old Delk Sinclair, studying aborad in Ireland means one thing: escape. Delk is tired of hearing about her friends' debutante parties, watching her pregnant stepmother redecorate her mother's house, and having to smile sweetly even though she doesn't think she'll ever get over losing her mother. Ireland is Delk's chance to be happy. With the stunning green landscape as backdrop, Delk revels in all things Irish, from living in a real Irish castle, to celebrating St. Paddy's Day in Galway, to enjoying Irish music and dance, to studying Yeats and shearing a sheep! So when Delk begins to fall for a very handsome Irishman, she wonders if there's more to the Emerald Isle than it first seemed. It is fun, to be sure, but will those smiling Irish eyes really be able to heal her broken heart forever? IRELAND! Yay, I'm part Irish and it was great to read about some Irish things for sure. Delk Sinclair, first off, is an awesome name! It sounds so good together hehe. Losing her mother and being overwhelmed by her father and pregant stepmother she goes to Ireland, and it def helps her. She makes new friends, and falls in love with Pather, which is a great name too by the way. And she learns new things about herself and other. She gets awesome grades in her classes and finally realizes that her mom will always be with her, everywhere she goes, and no one can change that. It's really sad actually, especially a mom dieing. But you can only keep going. And she does that. And she also gets to plan an amazing wedding for Pather's sister Katie. It sounded so cool! To have a theme like that is so fun, but also lots of work I know. Whatsup with all these marrying books haha, I didn't even know, but I'm gonna try to read as many as these S.A.S.S books as I can because I love them, even though it kinda is hard to find because they're all different authors! but that's ok! :]
