Review - Abroad by Liz Jacobs
Then he meets Izzy and her friends - especially the handsome and somewhat grumpy Dex.
Nick struggles with his anxiety, his sexuality and what his family back home will think.
Meanwhile, Dex - having previously suffered a bad break-up, doesn't want to let Nick in at first, but Nick has a way about him that Dex can't stay away from.
Izzy - bright, bubbly and unashamedly living out lout - comes up against her own issues with her previously-assumed sexuality.
Abroad is one of those books - you open it up and you just kind of fall in. It's comforting and uneasy at the same time. All of the characters - particularly the core three of Nick, Izzy and Dex - are particularly well-realised. And although you know what's coming, you can't help but become invested in the story and the characters.
It does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, and so I'm just hanging out for book two.
