Into the Jungle by Erica Ferencik
Lily has had a difficult life in and out of foster homes. When she finally finds Omar who is willing to love her unconditionally, she is not willing to let him go when he returns home to an isolated village in Bolivia, and decides to join him.
Fast-paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat as the story goes from one thrilling scene to the next. Completely submerges you in another culture. I had a hard time connecting with/liking Lily but she was starting to grow on my by the end.
