    1. Suzanne Nelson says:

      When she was in kindergarten, Suzanne Nelson jotted down in a school keepsake album that she wanted to be a riter Though she clearly had issues with spelling, she persisted, composing cryptic poems about rainbows, fairies, mud, and even Star Wars in spiral notebooks all through elementary school When she was seventeen, she filled four journals with her handwritten first novel, titled The Dream Keeper To escape her chores, she often lied to her parents about what time her shift started at the local fast food joint so that she could spend an extra hour writing in the parking lot in her mom s faded Buick Her first published novel was The Sound of Munich, followed by Heart and Salsa, The Ghoul Next Door, Cake Pop Crush, and Dead in the Water She is a shameless fan of The Sound of Music, Hershey s kisses, Charlotte Bronte, and Jane Austen, and can often be caught daydreaming of romping about gothic castles in lovely Victorian gowns She was born in New Jersey, grew up in Southern California, attended college in Texas, and spent eight years as a children s book editor in New York City She now lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut with her family.

    1. I read this so long ago but still remember it to be it was an amazing book. It's such a lovely break from the action packed fantasy or distopian books I read so often. Truly, a rom-com and "chick flick" in a book. Definitely worth a read.

    2. The Sound of Munich by Suzanne Nelson is chick lit at its best. It’s part of the S.A.S.S. (Students Across the Seven Seas) series which is all about a female teenage protagonist studying abroad in a foreign country and the trials, challenges and romance that goes with it. I have read a few of the books from this series in the past and this one was right in line – it definitely did not disappoint. The Sound of Munich follows seventeen-year-old Siena, a bohemian Cali girl who’s heading to Ge [...]

    3. I read this book, I believe, in the 6th grade and remember absolutely loving it. However, with that being said, I couldn't specifically remember the plot line nor the reasons why my 12-year old self got so giddy reading it, so I thought I'd buy the novel on and refresh my now 17-year old self (which btw, is Siena's age in the book).In terms of the positives of this book, there were a good handful:Honestly, when I decided to re-read The Sound of Munich -five years later- I expected it feel a lot [...]

    4. Over all, I found the book sweet but the characters incomplete and the times a bit dated. That said it contains one of the best lines I've read in recent memory "Hypocrisy makes a great blindfold." This quote alone makes reading the book worth it, especially in our current political environment.

    5. I received this book as a gift from my best friend on my 17th birthday. My love for the German language and culture began after reading this novel.

    6. Pros: Siena's determination in the book to finish something meaningful for her dad was heartwarming. Though her father died when she was a baby she wanted to honor his memory by finishing the final task on his Carpe Diem List. This final goal was to find and thank Peter Schwalm, a man who had helped smuggle him and his family past the Berlin Wall, risking everything. This one task on her father's list was the entire reason Siena wanted to go to Germany. One interesting moment towards the end of [...]

    7. And we're off to Munich, where yoga-happy, California-girl Siena is spending a semesterd maybe, just maybe, finding the man who helped her father escape post-war Germany.Who am I kidding? It's YA fluff; of course she finds him. But it's a sweet story, and Siena is pretty likable. It was a sad, sad day when she chose studying over socializing, she says (147), but despite her inability to keep her head tied on, she's not a birdbrain -- just scatterbrained. She's rational about The Boy, for one, an [...]

    8. I just love these traveling books! I think this book was maybe the best in the series. I liked how in this book, it wasn't just focusing on Siena traveling and finding herself, but finding out her family history and finishing her father's Carpe Diem list. This was a light and adventurous read, along with deep and emotional. Her connection with the people who knew her late father were real, and she found herself as well her as father and family's history.I usually read all these romance-y books, [...]

    9. This is a reread for me. Though the first time I read it in another edition.This book is probably the second time I read Suzanne Nelson (?). I like this one better than the other one, Heart & Salsa. The main character in this book is actually more likable. Sienna has her flaws, still her character is pretty realistic for a laid back kind-of-hippie teenager. Sienna's destination is Germany. No holocaust back story here. This time, it's about the Berlin Wall and freedom. Sienna's father's stor [...]

    10. Set in Munich, obviously from the title, I really enjoyed this installment in the S.A.S.S. series :D There was of course the token romance subplot, but the main plot actually had a lot of depth - Sienna wanting to find the man who helped smuggle her father (now deceased) and grandparents out of East Berlin in the 1960s. (view spoiler)[Of course she does eventually manage to track him down, as expected, but the meeting is way more moving than it is just a cliche happy ending. There's a lot more s [...]

    11. Cute and fluffy; didn't evoke Munich at all to me, though it's clear the author knows Munich and other parts of Germany well, so maybe my single week there didn't give me the full experience. I liked how much of a fantasy this was with the perfect roommates and perfect romance and unredeemably annoying Mean Girl and all problems resolved (which even made me a little teary: long lost family, Berlin Wall, etc). The aura-reading protagonist was a joke, but, well, whatever.

    12. I first chose this book because the protagonist has the same name as me. (Very rare.) I loved the whole story of falling in love with a culture. Siena starts out a total foreigner, and she leaves a true German. This book really captures the essence of the people. I liked the who theme of exploring your heritage thing too. The whole meeting with Peter was heartwarming. All in all, it was a fabulous book that made me want to travel more!

    13. Ceritanya seru aja, tetapi agak kecewa dengan blurb-nya yang bilang misi utamanya untuk menuntaskan daftar terakhir yang ingin dicapai ayahnya, hal itu malah kurang dieksplor. Untuk cerita dewasa muda, yang ketangkap seseruannya, konfliknya kurang tajam. Yah bacaan santailah nggak perlu mikir or menguras emosi banget, hehe.Lalu terjemahan secara keseluruhan enak dibaca, tapi ada beberapa bagian yang aneh. Dan secara editan masih kurang rapi banget. Not making a note, though. :)

    14. Siena is on her way to Germany from California to study for 3 months. She is hoping to learn more about her father's family, and to finish his Carpe Diem list. Her father died in a car accident before he could locate Peter, the man who smuggled him and his parents out of East Berlin. Siena makes some new friends who help her make the stars align so she can complete her dream and maybe find love on the way . . .

    15. This was a cute book. Predictable, but cute. It was almost more fun to read because I knew a lot of the places described (Marienplatz, Romantischerstrasse, Neuschwanstein, for example) than for the actual plot. It would be good for people interested in other countries and or people looking for a quick read that isn't the standard teenage romance fare. 3/5 on here, 7/10 for myself

    16. Heres another to this series i liked this story too. its a bout a girl named siena who goes to germany to find out more about her fathers past and while there meets a really cute guy who she falls in love with but he is one of the advisers and there for is off limits even though he is 2 years older than her. this one is really good full of romance and adventure.

    17. Ugh. I knew this wasn't going to be the German version of Anna and the French Kiss that I was hoping for, but seriously. This was the worst. The writing was clichéd and the plot bored me nearly to tears. I do love a good, fluffy chick lit novel, but this definitely doesn't qualify.

    18. i think that it was kind of a boring book because that could be in real life everyday so its usual. it was lind of sad because her father was dead and she is poor she goes to french and the capital city

    19. Just a cute, quick read I picked off the shelves because of the illustrated cover (:P). It was pretty typical, but Siena's compelling family history and hunt to find the man who saved her father's family from Berlin brought it all together.

    20. This was an okay book that could of been better.For a book that I thought was going to be an easy read, I constantly had to put it down and do something else because it just couldn't keep my attention.I may read it again but it will be a while before that happens.

    21. One of the S.A.S.S. series, (students studying abroad) that takes place in a city I know well. It was accurate in places and customs it described but it was alittle too romancy for me. But teenage girls might like

    22. For a teen book, it was a nice, quick read during a car trip. It was light, not overly sentimental with a solid overall plot. I would have liked a lot more from it concerning the culture and the people of Germany, but otherwise, it was pleasant.

    23. The title intrigued me right away, as I love The Sound of Music. At one point in the book, some of the study abroad students take a Sound of Music four-hour tour, which sounds amazing! I really enjoyed the premise of this book and found myself speeding through it.

    24. I thought it was cool that you herd about her school life and her family life. It was a great book overall.

    25. I misjudged this one at first. I regret it. It’s AMAZING! Well written with an amazing personal story. I really want to visit Germany now.
