For fans of Love & Gelato, this is a laugh-out-loud high school adventure set in Greece abd perfect for readers of Meg Cabot.
High school sophomore Zona Lowell has lived in New York City her whole life, and plans to follow in the footsteps of her renowned-journalist father. But when he announces they’re moving to Athens for six months so he can work on an important new story, she's devastated— he must have an ulterior motive. See, when Zona's mother married an American, her huge Greek family cut off contact. But Zona never knew her mom, and now she’s supposed to uproot her entire life and meet possibly hostile relatives on their turf? Thanks . . . but no thanks. 
In the vein of Anna and the French Kiss, Zona navigates a series of hilarious escapades, eye-opening revelations, and unexpected reunions in a foreign country—all while documenting the trip through one-of-a-kind commentary.

Baker & Taylor
"Fifteen-year-old Zona Lowell is finally comfortable in high school when her father tells her that they're moving to Greece for the second half of her sophomore year, and she will be forced to meet her mother's large extended family there against her will"--

The catalyst for the main characters move to Greece, was so frustrating to me, and then the story was only mildly interesting.

I really liked this book a lot. Zona goes to Greece for six months to meet her Greek family. Her mother died when Zona was born, and now they hold a grudge against Zona and her father. Zona is an interesting character. She is a chatterbox sometimes, and has an opinion about everything. Definitely read this!
