Author Ingrid Anders. KAT VESPUCCI TAKES TAIWAN Kindle Direct Publishing.
What do you do when your sweetheart of five years dumps you for someone else before your senior year of college? Flee the country, obviously. A Jersey girl through and through, Kat Vespucci, a conservative American college student, escapes a nasty break-up by spending her senior year studying abroad in Berlin, Germany. She really wanted to travel to London, but her parents insisted she learn something about her roots. Having rarely left her home state of New Jersey, let alone travel to a foreign country, Kat is completely unprepared for what lies ahead.
The title Earth to Kat Vespucci refers to a fellow student’s teasing about her ignorance. But instead of accepting her continuous foot-in-mouth situations as the inevitable, Kat immerses herself in local culture, reads up on history and politics, and asks her fellow study-abroad students about their lives and experiences. By the end, she could almost pass a cultured Berliner. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what Kat discovers on her next adventure: this time in China.
