Nine Days in Rome

Julian Gould

What happens in Rome stays in Rome-or does it?

Chaos ensues when a laid-off senior executive from the U.S. who has lived and worked for years in Italy takes a temporary job chaperoning sixteen high school students and their three teachers from Atlanta in the Eternal City of Rome. The executive, Atticus Winterle, finds himself forced to use all his skill with people along with selected local resources to keep the kids and teachers on track and out of trouble-to the extent possible. Despite, or perhaps because of, the strenuous efforts he must undertake to keep things from falling apart, he finds that both the teenagers and the adults-including himself-seem to grow closer and even learn from the experiences they share in the Italian capital.

In Nine Days in Rome, you will discover:

    The terrible toll bad parenting has taken on America's youth, and how this is reflected in the students' behavior on the trip.How romance finds a way to bloom even in the midst of the herculean job of shepherding a group of unruly teenagers.Captivating descriptions of Roman landmarks, art and architecture from an expert observerHow a trip to one of the world's most visited cities unleashes a series of crises, driven by factors common to this age group all over world such as drugs, hormones, depression, etc., that the neophyte chaperone must handle.
While the events the book chronicles may seem like fare for a Las Vegas lost weekend, the takeaway from these experiences is that people, teenagers and those of middle-age alike, can learn and grow in response to challenging circumstances. Join Atticus Winterle and this surprising group from Atlanta for an exciting tour of Rome that features moments of great joy and moments of great sadness and demonstrates how surprising bonds can be formed and connections made when people from different spheres are brought together.
