Their tour guide, Miguel, shows them around the pyramids, and they later travel to the interior of Mexico and end up in Puerto Vallarta on the West Coast.

    Fresh take on young love, friendship and forgiveness.Danielle Burnette's "The Spanish Club" is a fresh take on young love, friendship and foregiveness. It's greatly appreciated that Burnette chose to create a diverse cast of characters and set the novel in Mexico. The characters, Brianna, Dana, and Enrique felt realistic and we're not wrapped in pretty little bows. I found myself feeling sorry for Brianna through most of the book as she tried to process her family secret and deal with her not so [...]

    I bought this book directly from the author in Portland at Pioneer Square. I've spent the last week reading it on my bus commute and it has really been a delight to read. Really satisfying ending and I love all the Spanish thrown in, with the perfect amount of context and explanation to add to the tone of the story without bringing you out of it or making you feel like you're getting a language lesson. Brianna's journey had the perfect amount of ups and downs and I really enjoyed the pacing. I w [...]

    A great read! I received an ecopy of this book from story cartel in exchange for an honest review. This book tells the story of a group of people traveling and learning about cultures. Really enjoyed the whole concept of the book itself and the characters were very relatable. I rated this a 4 because I feel like this book would suit middle aged teenagers and below. Great job!

    *Sent for honest review by Reading AlleyWhile I enjoyed Danielle Burnett's coming of age novel, The Spanish Club, I found it lacking in philosophical ruminations or the proverbial ah-ha moment that is the crux of coming of age novels. Sadly, every minute of Brianna's story revolved around one issue that was glazed over at its inception. Her parents telling her she is adopted and coming clean that she is not their child should have been a monumental event if it was going to be the running reason [...]

    I received a digital copy of The Spanish Club in exchange for my honest review. I have been trying for several weeks to finish The Spanish Club, so after eighteen chapters, I will be abandoning it instead. I realize that I did not make the necessary connection, to either Brianna or Dana, to wonder if they made it home from their class trip to Mexico or if their friendship survived the journey.Several things that may have deterred me:**The characters were more cliche than realistic. I believe I w [...]

    So a few days ago, I got into this HUGE contemporary mood for a few hours. As a result, this book was started, just by a simple thought! I feel this book was a great change for me considring I've been reading A LOT of fantasy lately (In fact I'm reading fantasy now). I really felt for Brianna and definitely was able to form opinions on other characters (i.e. Stacia, Dana, Enrique, etc.). Overall, the story was very intriquing and heartfelt. Now, there IS a story of how I aquired this book (Becau [...]

    I was given this book, in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book, up until half-way through it. I was really annoyed with the friendship Dana and Brianna had, and how it continued to drag on throughout their time in Mexico. I almost quit reading it half-way through because I was annoyed. I think I would have liked it better, if Dana was so brooding in her character. I was glad I finished it and was really surprised at the secret that was revealed towards the end. I don't think I woul [...]

    Having attended sixth grade in Guadalajara, I was surprised and intrigued by all the settings in Mexico as the Spanish Club tours the sights. The book brought back many memories of a time when I too experienced the cultural clash that occurs when we visit a new country for the first time. The diversity of so many of the characters is super refreshing and felt very real. This group of kids struggles with the differences in the colors of their skin and their cultural heritages and this theme, wove [...]
