Francesca is at the beginning of her second term in Year 11 at an all boy's school that has just started accepting girls. She still misses her old friends, and, to make things worse, her mother has had a breakdown and can barely move from her bed.

But Francesca had not counted on the fierce loyalty of her new friends, or falling in love, or finding that it's within her power to bring her family back together.

    " not as good as looking for alibrandi "

    " Not a bad book. Kinda slow and boring in the beginning but it gets better as the story progresses. What I liked most was seeing Francesca develop friendships with the guys at the school. My favorite characters were Jimmy and Thomas. They're so funny. They really stood out to me. This book also has a little romance but also deals with real life issues. Great book about friendship and real friends who are there for you no matter what. "

    " Great young adult fiction, but you would expect it after her first brilliant novel. Loved the characters and the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/3/2011

    " Melina Marchetta is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I love how the voice of her main character is so distinct and true to being a teenager. This story is one of true friendships and Francesca finding her place at a boy-dominated prep school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/25/2011

    " The characters really make this book, as they are very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexa | 4/19/2011

    " I understand the hype about Melina Marchetta. I'll have to see if it works as well for Jellicoe Road. This book was heart wrenching, even though it's really just a small family story. But family is so important, and Francesca's family is so important to her. "
