Saving Francesca

Saving Francesca - Melina Marchetta So much love for this book. This author takes a topic and tells every story there is to tell around it in order to drive home the central theme.Francesca is a sad, sweet girl who is overshadowed by her family, her (non)friends, and her own desires. Her growth - forced upon her by her mother's crippling depression - is a joy to read. I loved the secondary characters and am eager to start The Piper's Son.
