In theory this book is alright. I know plenty of people that loved it - my sister (who is renowned for her ability to read signs - and sometimes branching out to menus) is one of those, but something about this book really irritated me. Perhaps it was the plight of the main character being so damn obvious or perhaps I'm being too harsh but I hated it. Conversely I am in love with Saving Francesca by said author. Take that as you will. ( )

Okay, here's a good start. LOL.

It's interesting to see the world from a different window. And I feel torn. It's wonderful and complex, but the feelings I have are complicated. There are things that make me stop and stare, make me uncomfortable and unsure.

But the thing is, this is probably one of the most wonderful stories about growing up I've read. I struggle to define what this book gives me, yet I know it's something solid and true and precious.

It's sad and wonderful and hopeful. It feels like life in all its glory and all its dread. It's different, oh so very different. And it's true. And maybe it never happened but it's a glimpse of a life well lived.

HEA=2

FINAL VERDICT: READ, OWN, SPREAD THE LOVE ( )

This is Marchetta's first novel, but I read it last. Marchetta is one of those author's who are "home" to me. I begin reading and it's like a warm blanket, or a good cup of tea...comforting and lovely. In this novel, published in 1992, Marchetta deals more directly with Italian/Australian relations than she did in other novels. I don't know much about racism in Australia and it was interesting and unsettling reading the novel and not completely understanding the background.
Josie Alibrandi has spent her life surrounded by her protective mother and hovering grandmother. A child born to a child, Josie deals with the stigma of being illegitimate in a subculture that prides itself on strong families and tradition. Her grandmother spends so much time worrying about what others think that Josie feels ready to explode.
Through the course of her final year in high school Josie learns more than she ever imagined--why her grandmother worries, who her father is and what he's like, how lucky she is to be loved by two strong women, what it's like to be loved by a boy, and most of all, that the culture that stifles her can also set her free.
I graduated high school in 1992, approximately when Josie would have. My subculture in Pennsylvania was also quite conservative and insular. I recognized a lot of Josie's struggles as my own, even while recognizing that the struggles look different now. The book might seem a bit dated to today's teens--or at least innocent--but it's well-written, with a thoughtful protagonist,and should be read by all Marchetta fans. ( )

The story of a 17-year-old Italian Australian girl coming to terms with her illegitimacy, having a boyfriend, and life after high school.
It can't be called a coming-of-age story, because I'm not convinced that the main character did much maturing, really. This, along with the mediocre writing, merits a meh from me. ( )

I loved this book the first time I read it and I'm looking forward to enjoying it again with my students.
