Publisher's Description

Madison Chase’s holiday break is drawing to a close and she’s eager to leave the gray Washington winter and join her Aunt Sid on a warm vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Maddie is pleasantly surprised when her good friend Ryan McIntire shows up to enjoy the trip with them, and she looks forward to spending time with him. But when Ryan runs into his high school crush, the beautiful Shelby Wagner, Maddie’s jealousy threatens to spoil their sun-drenched days.

Unsure of her relationship with Ryan, Maddie distracts herself by befriending a local girl, Francesca Tarrago, who is both intelligent and hardworking but lives in deep poverty. As Maddie does what she can to help Francesca, she discovers a secret that Shelby has been keeping from all of them. Can Maddie put aside her conflicted feelings and love Shelby enough to help her?

This third book in the Notes from a Spinning Planet series invites young women to the romantic beaches of Mexico to explore a love deeper than simple affection and the meaning of true sacrifice.

    This time Maddie and Aunt Sid are on vacation. The timeshare Aunt Sids friend bought isnt much of a vacation, though. Still, the ladies vow to enjoy themselves in beautiful Cabo San Lucas. In a surprise visit, Ian and Ryan show up. The guys have a great hotel, and Maddie is enjoying the visit when beautiful blonde Shelbya girl from Ryans pastsaunters into the picture. Maddie is jealous, but she and Ryan really arent a couple. So she preoccupies herself by helping her new friend Francesca find a better job. This was a frustrating story! Shelby is annoying and she steals Ryan away from Maddie early on in the vacation. Maddie deals with it very well. She doesnt go crazy with jealous anger, fits, or revenge. She simply goes on with her own life, trying to do whats right and have fun. It isnt easy for her, but any guy who has his priorities straight wouldnt be blind-sighted by Shelbys act for long. Ryan is no exception. What I loved about this story was the fact that Maddie behaves so lovingly toward Shelby. Its not only the right thing to do, but its attractive to Ryan because guys want a girl who is about something. Girls, if you want to catch a great guy, dont chase him and put on an act. Be yourself. Maddie comes to the conclusion that if Ryan is really into Shelby and her wild ways, he really isnt the guy for her. Too true. Youve got to read this one to see how it all works out. Highly recommended.

    I love the travel stories about Maddie Chase!!! Can't wait till the next one. As usual, Maddie finds a way to share Christain love with someone who needs help. These are wonderful stories. Highly recommended especially for the young or young at heart!!

    I think that this was my favorite book out of the series. With this story, Maddie was able to enjoy herself and seek out social justice at the same time. The whole situation with Francesca's sisters and the orphanage sounded really sketchy. I wonder how many similar situations take place and it makes me worry that people will not use money correctly. I was really glad that the subject of binge drinking was brought up. In previous books, drinking one or two beers was not seen as a problem. However with this book, Shelby has become an alcoholic and refuses to admit it until Sid threatens her with drastic measures. Even an allergic reaction that almost kills her doesn't stop her. Sadly this is how many teens view their own lives. They don't care if something harms them as long as it makes them feel like it's giving a good time. But I really love how I can relate to these books. The feelings that Maddie had whenever Shelby was around her and Ryan, I think almost every girl has felt that way. And no matter how Christian a guy will be, just like Ryan they will always seem to give more attention to the prettier girl that seems to flaunt herself. It's a typical guy thing that will sadly never change, lol. I found the timeshare bit quite funny. I don't think I could get out of one of those as well as Sid could have. I really hope there will be another book in this series. There's so many other places that Maddie and Sid should travel to. I would highly recommend this book for older teens.
