Faithful and Devoted by Jenna Rose Robbins

There are many entry points into this 1993 week-long Spain trip memoir by longtime ghostwriter Jenna Rose Robbins.  Get to know Jenna as an affable, determined teenager and U of Michigan student, learning to distinguish herself from her family.  You might be curious to compare her college European travels – New York-style – to your own. Or, perhaps you are a Depeche Mode fan, like Jenna. Get the inside scoop on the band’s fashion details and drinking habits, what hotels they chose and clubs they enlivened.  You might use the book as a travel guide for your next trip to Madrid, Barcelona, Pontevedra and Léon.  Jenna is also a model travel companion to her penpal-become-hostess, Marta, that is, a model both to exemplify and avoid following.  Maybe you’re agnostic, wondering what faith is all about.  Learn what it’s like to be faithful, devoted, AND an atheist.  “…The crowd, as if partaking of a religious ceremony, stopped shoving and became one with the universe – or, at least, the arena” (140).  However you approach this book, it doesn’t disappoint.  Jenna’s no-nonsense, easy-going articulation of her experience makes the read well worth it.  find it on Goodreads
