Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsRead Review
Francesca is at the beginning of her second term in Year Eleven at an all boy's school that has just started accepting girls. She still misses her old friends, and, to make things worse, her mother has had a breakdown and can barely move from her bed.
But Francesca had not counted on the fierce loyalty of her new friends, or falling in love, or finding that it's within her power to bring her family back together.
One of my favourites.
My copy is this book is tattered.
It's falling to pieces.
And maybe I'm exaggerating but it's THAT good.
Saving francesca is a great novel about a girl who lives in Sydney and is sent to a boys school for year 11 and 12 because they just opened up to girls and her old school only catered for girls up to year 10. As the story continues she fights for the girls rights in her new school, falls in love and finds out more about herself, her family and friends.
Melina Marchetta's book is well written, funny, quirky and drags you in from the first second. I loved reading this book and recomend it to all.
Francesca's has just started at an all boys school that just opened up for girls. Her mum won't get out of bed, it feels like all her old friends have forgotten about her, and the only people that seem to notice her are the ones that she can't stand. When everything is falling apart, who can save Francesca?
This book would be dark and depressing if it wasn't for the new friends that Francesca makes, and the humour they provid. They're probably the best bit.
Anything else by Melina Marchetta (e.g Looking for Alibrandi) or Jaclyn Moriarty (e.g Feeling Sorry for Celia).
Somewhere warm where you can remind yourself that what's happening to Francesca isn't happening to you hopefully).

A 16 year old girl called Francesca Spinelli.She was reasonably happy at her old school-St Stellas but it only went up to year 10. So, for year 11, she was forced to move to a new school- St Sebastians, an only boys school that has recently started accepting girls. Unfortunatly and unexpectly, Francesca's mother has a nervous breakdown and everything starts to fall apart...
The emotions portrayed by the character's feelings are very strong and hit you right in the heart.Also this book is very witty and funny in the way she describes her surroundings.
teen romances and dealing with adolescence.
In a quiet room with a nice cup of earl gray tea!
great and the song i would choose would be Sarah McLaughlin's \"In the arms of the angel\"
A year 11 girl who moves to what used to be an all boys school, which has recently gone co-ed. While she is there everything goes wrong. Her mother has a nervous breakdown and is in bed for three months. She and her father fight their differences. While this is happening, she is moved to her Nonna's place and her little brother Luca is moved to their auntie's place to stay for a while. At school she has a crush on her house leader but knows he has a girlfriend. She doesn't know what to do because her former friends went to a different school as St Stella's, her previous school, only went up to year 10.
All Francesca's problems in the book, are issues everyone deals with in real life. Nothing about it seems fake.
If you enjoyed Mishaps by Nansi Kunze.
In bed or in a big armchair with a nice blanket.
A mix between Enrique Iglesias and Kylie Minogue.
