    BACKSTORY skip this section if you don't want to read my ramblingI got this book during high school thinking it'd help me learn some SAT words while improving my reading skills Well the truth is it didn't Not because this is not a good book but I simply loathed reading Fast forward a decade later I was cleaning out my belongings from my parent's house and I found this hidden gem It was wrapped with recycled printed news paper so I couldn't tell what book it was The only clue to the title of the book was my hand writing on the cover it printed Mario MissionHmm Is this Mario Kart related? When did I obtain such treasure? I thought to myselfI opened the book out of curiosity I wanted to know what the heck this book was about only to realize that not only I've spelled the book title wrong but also I've discovered yet another embodiment of a perfect example of my many futile attempts to study English Needless to say my SAT score was mostly made up by my math section; and the career I'm in definitely not much creative writing skills involved After reminiscing my high school days I thought I'd give this book another try Why not? BOOK REVIEW start here if you just want to know how the book isVOCABULARIESThis book has my support I'd recommend it for any student studying for SAT or simply wanting to read something while learning vocabularies All the SAT words used within a page are bolded and their definitions displayed on the bottom In addition the author has consolidated lists of all new words at the end of the book along with exercises that are intended to further your learnings Since this is a high school reading material I thought it'd be interesting to see how many pages I'd find vocabularies I wasn't familiar with With that mindset I started my reading and always had a pencil with me to mark a page if I found words unknown to me at the moment Ironically and sadly I should've done the opposite instead I should've marked pages which I know all the words The reality is that I actually marked almost every single page GAHHHH I am feeling embarrassed and hilarious at the same time STORYPLOTThe story Classic teenager drama The protagonist girl Alexa is a typical high school girl who is just like the rest of us as the book points out but also not really as the book points out she's unlike her peers who enjoy dressing up and being attractive and popular Of course the main male character in the book another teenager boy about the same age is utterly attractive and intelligent and falls for nobody else on the island except Alexa this foreign visitor from another continent He's into her because she's all natural and not all about her appearance unlike other regular girls And they fall in love at first sight butterflies finally kissing Honestly I feel personally attacked as I'm labeled as this regular type of girl that this book is not promoting Is it wrong to wanting to look decent?The storyline itself is uite dull I think I am too spoiled by stories like Game of Thrones ok let's not talk about the last season on TV series and I constantly expect the unexpected but the storyline in this book has always been predictable If it looks like something's about to happen it happens I've had too many disappointments; I had higher hopes for the story to unfold in a adventurous fashion But it didn't IDEAS BEHIND THE STORIESSurprisingly this book touches upon some bigger ideas that I didn't expect such teenager love romcom story to have Especially about looking at issues from different perspectives and how the main characters represented the different sides of an argument It surfaced some fundamental struggles and constant debates between the emotional Liberals and the practical Conservatives While the book itself does not reveal which side the author supports it has helped me to understand the importance of being cognitive about others' point of views I certainly didn't expect to learn such big life lesson from a book and story like this CONCLUSIONOverall I enjoyed reading this book The story was easy to follow and the author tried to incorporate as many SAT words in his writing as possible While the story could be interesting I do appreciate the lessons and the learnings the book tries to teach the readers mainly high school students I suppose

    I enjoyed this book This book is about Alexa who travels to Central America with her mother who has been offered a new summer job She befriends a local Jose They bond and uncover a mystery that they are indeted to solving Throughout the book you watch there friendship grow into something Also there are 1000 SAT words in this book For any high schoolers wanting to improve there vocabulary and read a good story I definitely recommend this book

  4. Debby Debby says:

    There is a decent story somewhere underneath the 1000 vocabulary words teens are supposed to know to successfully pass the SAT The author also a PhD in molecular biology TRIES to help teens learn the vocab through the story but it kills the flow No teen would EVER talk the ways these kids do There are multiple footnotes of ever page with word definitions and 100 pages of vocabulary exercises at the end of 200 very short pages of text This is a great vocabulary builder but not a good read Not recommended for anyone except a high school student trying to learn vocabulary

  5. Hong Deng Hong Deng says:

    This is a great book containing a fascinating story about a American girl who went to Central America and discovered a secret of a Marine Facility about dolphins The best part of the book is the accurate usage of 1000 SAT vocabulary words with definitions on the bottom I certainly recommend this book to people who are interested in expanding vocabularies as well as trying to find a book to read for fun

  6. Megan Curtis Megan Curtis says:

    I really liked this book because it relates to most teenage girls This girl has to go down to an island where she doesn't want to leave her father and friends She has a normal challenging life as any other teenage girl and is interested in guys When she goes down to Nicaragua for the summer she meets a guy and they have a little thing with each other I rated this a 5 because I like reading adventures and would recommend it for girls because it is about a girl

  7. Gineiris Gineiris says:

    This book is all right If you want to learn a lot of words for the SAT's it's great Otherwise it will just be a cute story about some dolphins It's a bit slow at first but gets better in the middle and the end is good too except for the last chapter because it's a bit uneventful and corny Not a good ending but I still recommend it because you learn a lot of new words

  8. Reba Reba says:

    Kind of painful to read with all of the excessive vocabulary but I guess that was kind of the point of the bookstill some serious verbal gymnastics going on here The good news is I aced all the uizzes in the back Bring on the SAT's At least the verbal part

  9. Mimi Mimi says:

    The book had a very cute plot although I didn't like how the events developed But is very nice how we read and learn new vocabulary words at the same time

  10. Suzanne Chaar Suzanne Chaar says:

    I really love this book It was very good book and it was one of the best book I ever read in English
