This book is a love story. It's about love in all possible representations, forms and masks it can wear. It's a love story of a girl in her 20s, looked back on by a woman in her 30s, who is also trying to take a peek into the future. It's an ageless book, it's a borderless book, it’s a book that focuses on and laughs at our cultural differences, yet sweeps away all man-made boundaries on its way. But I made it sound too complex. It's first and foremost a story about a summer away from home, it's a story about falling in and out of love - it's a story about My Journey to the Ocean.

Hi Isabell and everybody who is reading this wonderful blog. I am really happy to be here :). My name is Lena Mikado. I was born and raised in Voronezh, Russia, but I have been living in the United States for the last 10 years. I am also a translator - I absolutely love foreign languages - and I work with words in that way or another 20 hours out of the day. Life has been pretty crazy recently :). I have two little boys - 5 and 2 years old, and they keep me super busy. I also love traveling, going to the beach and belly-dancing :).
Wow, that's a tough one :). Let's see...
1. It will make you laugh out loud.
2. It will make you remember what you were like in your early twenties - and laugh out loud.
3. And, hopefully, it can help you enhance your life - and live it as you have always wanted - because we never should quit dreaming. :)
