Looking for AlibrandiLooking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 1/2 stars for this one.

This is the story of a young Italian-Australian girl in year 12 on scholarship at a posh Catholic High School. It is a coming of age story but so much more. Josie deals with so many adult situations along with the typical teenage situations like first love. We watch her grow and mature and find herself.

It's a beautiful story and expertly written. I highly recommend it to all who like YA lit.
