2015 book 111

Melina Marchetta's Saving Francesca
After trying, and failing, to plow my way through a book I didn't find enjoyable, I needed a palate cleanser for my brain and had to reread a book I love. And I love this one every time--the story of a girl, part of the first class of girls at what was previously an all-boy school, trying to figure out who she is and almost unwillingly making friends, but most of all, dealing with her mother's depression and her family starting to fall apart. Marchetta gets me every time with this one.
