2015 book 143

Melina Marchetta's Jellicoe Road
I am just like, urgle burgle, I love Melina Marchetta's books so much! I wanted to reread this one for some cathartic crying, and also it's been a while and the details were hazy. It focuses on a teenage girl at a school in Australia, who's trying to untangle the mysteries of her past (with the help of a manuscript detailing events from a generation before) while also leading her school in annual territory wars against a troop of cadets and the local townie kids. Marchetta does troubled kids and romance and friendship and family sooooo well.
