Julia Whelan, author of My Oxford Year

At 24, Ella Durran has finally made it to England on a Rhodes Scholarship when she’s offered an unbelievable position in a rising political star’s presidential campaign. With the promise that she’ll work remotely and return to DC at the end of her Oxford year, she’s free to enjoy her Once in a Lifetime Experience. That is, until a smart-mouthed local ruins her shirt and her first day. When Ella discovers that her English literature course will be taught by that same local, Jamie Davenport, she thinks that Oxford might not be all she’s envisioned.
