If I was going to sum this book up in one word, it would be adorable .

I don't even know what to say about it, except it's just brilliant. And fun. And real.

Sixteen year old Francesca Spinelli attends predominantly male St. Sebastian's School. She deals with issues that most every teenager deals has to deal with--friendships and love and boys with girlfriends and finding out who you are as a person. She also has a lot of other things on her plate: her mother's mysterious illness and her family potentially falling apart.

I love love LOVE Francesca's character. The girl is funny. I love her friends and the easy relationship that they have, even when it's complicated. I just love this story.

It's a quick read and I definitely think you should check it out!

Michele C. Tessa Gratton gives an amazing review of this, as well as "The Piper's Son". I can't even put into words how much I loved this book.
