She suddenly has to deal with having her father around for the first time in her life, falling in love and uncovering her family's secret background. Despite all the turmoil, this is the year Josie discovers that emancipation doesn't mean escaping from your past. Sometimes you need to face up to who you are in order to set yourself free...
Looking for alibrandi was a very well written book. I enjoyed the story alot. The ending made me sad though!! :(
I found it really interesting to read now and to see how much the times have changed in the past 2O years (the book is from 1992). Our world today is so different, even though it wasnt that long ago.
Overall i think everyone should pick up this book and give it a go, boys included. It a wonderful story and i look for ward to reading more of melina marchetta's books.
Looking for Alibrandi is a very interesting book , which was written by the lovely author Melina Marchetta. This book was published by the pengun group in 1992 , it involves drama , love and reality , it also won the award of ‘book of the year’.
Looking for Alibrandi is about a seventeen year old girl who is in her final year in a wealthy catholic school , she’s all stressed out about it because she doesn’t know what she wants to do when this year is over. Josephine’s year was a very busy year , the year , the year where everything went wrong for her, she meets her dad who she had never seen before , falls in love with the guy she had always hated and finds the darkest secrets of her family’s history.
I really like this book , I enjoyed reading it. It has a lot of drama throughout the chapters. Her family’s drama doesn’t stop until Josephine decides to change her attitude to life and act like a grown up.
Josephine’s dad is back , her family’s darkest secrets are revealed , her future is ahead of her and her best friend dies. Is she really Josephine Alibrandi or is that all a made up lie to to save her family’s reputation?
Looking for Alibrandi is a heart-warming story about an italian girl in year 12 at a posh school in australia. Throughout the course of the story love brews and the young secrets are uncovered as the young Josephine Alibrandi discovers a new life. I loved this book and recommend it for teens and young adults.
A great book to read!
