So now you've got me hooked into this book too Mrs McDonnell! It's a fascinating character study of the people in a little Italian town from a young girl's point of view. It starts when Elena and her brilliant friend, Lila were about 9. Now I'm half way through the book and they are 14, but on already on different pathways in life, even though intrinsically linked.
This is a blog where we can share ideas about what we're reading and hopefully get some inspiration for future reading choices..
