Okay, probably not. I am a fourth-generation Californian, and an American mutt, but identify most strongly with my Italian heritage. My mother’s family, of strong Norwegian/German descent, tried to teach me how to do things right. How to cook, clean, sew, budget accordingly – all the things a proper young girl should know to be a contributing member of society. I, however, failed m

I was so involved in these characters' lives that I didn't want the books to end. I took my sweet time reading them, but I have loved hearing the old stories of Italian heritage. It brought me back to my youth and swept me back to the old country.

“Love isn't safe. And whoever you love will hurt you. It's part of the human experience. No one is perfect...People make mistakes. The secret is to focus on what they do right and decide what quirks you can live with.”
Kristin Billerbeck, A Billion Reasons Why

“Sometimes our biggest mistakes give us our greatest reward.”
Kristin Billerbeck, A Girl's Best Friend

“you can plan so that nothing goes wrong in life. But something will, and it won't be what you expected to go wrong. So make sure you're with someone who will help you bail the water out of the boat, not someone who will blame you for the hole.”
Kristin Billerbeck, A Billion Reasons Why
