    For the first time in I don t know how long, I got exactly what I expected from a book For the first time, I find myself thinking that this book has a very, very accurate blurb.Except for the last part, where it says that this is a compelling story of romance, because, although the romance is a big part of the story indeed, it isn t entirely charming or swoon worthy, but that s definitely something subjective This is my first read of 2017, so yay to that I ve started close to eleven books and on [...]

    There is this cute, bouncing red tomato bopping around GoodReads singing the praises of Melina Marchetta.I ll admit that I ignored the Tomato because my therapist said that it wasn t normal for fruit to recommend books to people I accepted this advice because I d already read Marchetta s Looking for Alibrandi and I hadn t enjoyed it.I couldn t understand people s fascination with it, actually Nobody in my class at school liked Looking for Alibrandi and I thought for awhile that maybe it was beca [...]

    Between the beautiful Edward Cullens and the sexy Salvatore brothers of today s young adult literature, it s easy to see why teenage girls think they re doing something wrong when all they get is Rob with the mullet who likes to fart and swear in the classroom That s what I like so much about this book it s not a story of beautiful, unrealistic people or the abnormally brave and self sacrificing This is the most honest depiction of school, boys and family for a teenager that I have ever read.The [...]

    Updated 6 29 2016Nobody writes friendships and dialogue quite like Melina Marchetta.Weird attitude towards anti depressants though Updated 8 16 12So, two years later after my original reading of Saving Francesca and I am removing a star I ve been claiming for a long time that this novel was my favorite by Marchetta, but it s not true any Let s see where my rereading of the entire Marchetta catalog leads me, however at this point I am certain I now prefer her fantasies Truly, her later novels ar [...]

    4 Stars Wipes tears This author gets me every time.Okay, twice She got me twice I ve read two of her books But that only means there s of her brilliance to enjoyOh, yeahhhSaving Francesca is a very touching and gentle read that centers not only on common themes such as family, friendship, and love but thoroughly explores the heartaches of depression and the toll it can take on a family as a whole I ve read many books where the narrator main protagonist suffers a mental disorder We get close to [...]

    4.5 starsJust ask how I m feeling, I want to say Just ask and I may tell you.But no one does.Chantal read a YA contemporary And she liked it shocked face Melina Marchetta has become my queen of contemporary First On the Jellicoe Road and now Saving Francesca The woman can do no wrong I still can t fathom how she managed to make me this in love with characters in less than 250 pages On the Jellicoe Road has a significantly higher rating on GR compared to Saving Francesca and I can see why Saving [...]

    It s a weird smile, but it reaches his eyes and I bottle it And I put it in my ammo pack that s kept right next to my soul and Justine s spirit and Siobham s hope and Tara s passions Because if I m going to wake up one morning and not be able to get out of bed, I m going to need everything I ve got to fight this disease that could be sleeping inside of me After reading Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta I m convinced that this author can write a 500 page book about the different brands of toil [...]

    My thoughts after reread My WHAT My THOUGHTS Are you kidding me Do I look like I m able to think Francesca Tara Will Jimmy Luca Mia Bob the builder Tom You ruined me for life, you know that Dysfunctional Hysterical Bastards Endearing Unforgettable Real I didn t know anything about how fantastic realistic fiction could be before meeting these characters a year ago Saving Francesca is so clever nothing feels forced, and it becomes magical when I feel as if everything is relatable to me, even when [...]

    Why did I feel so grateful that people treated me well Sometimes you stumble upon a story that is just too much like yourself.This story is too much like myself.That is why I don t know if I will ever write a review I hope I will, but right now doing it would feel like carving the heart out of my chest Am I making sense Weirdly enough, yes While I struggle with myself, please, please, please Go read this book Okay, so I had a few hours to get my act together and, while I am still so very not rea [...]

  11. Maggie Stiefvater

    This book came highly recommended and I have to admit I put off getting it from my library for quite awhile because I prefer stories where there are a supernatural creatures ravaging a town, b dead bodies and angst, or c any combination of a b SAVING FRANCESCA, of course, has neither But it turned out that it didn t matter The winning characters in this novel, the story of Francesca, one of a handful of girls at a previously all boys school, carry the novel all on their own, no dead bodies or fa [...]

  12. Shannon

    This book made me remember why I tend to only read fantasy everyday life is just so tedious I realize that I am in a very tiny minority when it comes to disliking this book, and it always makes me feel like I m missing something when I don t like a book or series lauded as incredible I have to wonder if perhaps this type of book just isn t for me though, and that because of the way I grew up and the environment I was raised in I just won t ever be able to relate to something like this For most o [...]

  13. Vinaya

    Aaaand Tatiana scores again I ve read every book ever written by Sarah Dessen I ve read Elizabeth Chandler And Kate Brian And Melissa Kantor And Lauren Barnholdt And practically every other YA author out there SO when I began reading Saving Francesca, I was slightly dismissive For the first hundred pages or so, I continued dismissive It s not like I haven t heard the story before New girl in school, out of place, dysfunctional family, misunderstood, etc, etc Don t get me wrong, I loved Marchetta [...]

  14. Eh?Eh!

    Thank you, Tommy VD forever I think I used to pursue only fantasy books because I thought I had to read about magic in order to have those magical transporting feelings, you might know the ones, like when Mathilda knocks over the glass with her mind and in the end stays with Miss Honey like when Bran desperately reaches out with the crystal sword to cut the first blooming spray from the Midsummer tree or how about when Amberle looks back at Wil and as he screams she reaches out to the Ellcrys an [...]

    4 Stars Melina Marchetta is a new author for me so I didn t know what to expect reading this novel I haven t read many YA novels, but I can say Saving Francesca was very different from all the YA I ve read so far Saving Francesca is a moving story about family, friendship, love, growing up, finding yourself and also about depression The story is told entirely from Francesca s POV, our 16 years old heroine, a girl who s struggling with her new reality She s one of the new 30 girls at St Sebastian [...]

    This review is headed down memory lane Consider yourself warned.In chemistry class during my senior year of high school, I learned my trio of guy friends had a code name for me, which was wait for it The Cheese I certainly mulled over that discovery for days I suppose I should have been flattered and maybe worried that they talked about me enough to warrant a nickname Yet I was primarily concerned with their choice Why, oh why, did it have to be The Cheese Do I eat my string cheese too conspicuo [...]

    The people who know me around here, know that I have a hard time expressing my feelings about books I like Well No wait, I m sorry, this is all wrong because I don t like this book I love it Every single word on every single page.This was the first time that I didn t want to finish a book because I had so much fun reading it I felt really happy and really sad at the same time when I turned the last page.Many many thanks to all the Bookers who recommended this book to me I m sure I would never ha [...]

  18. Jess

    BLESS YOU ALL FOR PUSHING THIS BOOK AND FOR MAKING SURE I M NOT THE LAST AUSSIE TO DEVOUR A MARCHETTA BOOK Because I just want to wrap this book up and frame it.The thing with living in a country that s become rather Americanised is that you often forget the talent that s right under your nose Like Marchetta I remember reading 2 other books of hers back when I was young but despite it ironically being my most impressionable years, I was rather underwhelmed Perhaps I just stared at words and thou [...]

    Oh, little book Sweet, painful, truehearted little book.I concluded in my review of The Boyfriend List that regular high school shenanigans young adult bores me without zombies or faeries or whatever I retract that I submit instead that high school shenanigans bore me hang on, this really is a different argument See, okay, it s not like I didn t have high school shenanigans I went to the dances, I had a crush on my best friend s boyfriend, I drank wine out of a box and threw up in someone s bath [...]

  20. Jessica

    How does she do it How does she write a story so beautiful and captivating that it makes me want to crawl inside the book and hug all the characters and tell them how much I adore them How does she wrap topics like friendship, family, love and coming of age into one amazing story that leaves me grinning like a dork, puts warmth in my heart and tears in my eyes How does Melina Marchetta do it Can you tell me This seems to become a habit with her books Just like when I started reading Jellicoe Roa [...]

  21. Flannery

    This book tells the story of Francesca, an Australian girl who is one of a small number of girls enrolled at a formerly all boys school I didn t know too much about the book going into it so I thought it was going to be a fun jaunt into Australian high school life and basically fluff I was so far off base it is laughable Contrary to the idea you get from the cover art,this book deals with serious issues, namely Francesca s transition into the school while her mother is suffering from debilitatin [...]

  22. Nina (Every Word A Doorway)

    Saving Francesca was one of my favourite contemporaries growing up Do something that scares you everyday Marchetta s wonderfully written Saving Francesca offers a realistic, touching, and sensitive take on what it s like to have a mentally ill parent Living and growing up with a mentally ill parent is hard, especially when you re a teenager struggling with the obstacles of adolescence ha, don t we all miss those Saving Francesca is an accurate portrayal of how a parent battling depression affect [...]

  24. Meredith Holley

    I guess I have mixed feelings about Saving Francesca I like the friends, and I like the way Marchetta tells the friends I like the way she talks about camp because that felt real, and there was one moment in the book where I thought, Ahh, truth But, I thought Francesca was mostly annoying She pushed a lot of the buttons that were permanently welded to my framework in high school They are mostly rusted over and useless buttons at this point, so I wasn t really bitter at Francesca, but she does bo [...]

  25. Phrynne

    I loved this book I loved the way that there were always people there caring for Francesca, friends, teachers and family, even when she did not always realise it This is how real life goes Teachers are not always evil, grown ups are not always enemies Melina Marchetta writes a realistic story of a real teenager s life so different from many YA books I enjoyed so many of the characters in this book and the tissues needed to be handy on several occasions I am not surprised that this author wins pr [...]

  26. Sue (Hollywood News Source)

    I want to thank all of my friends who incessantly pushed this book towards me.Once upon a time I read Saving Francesca and I abandoned it I had this impression that was completely different from what the story is truly all about And I wasn t sure if I m going to like that idea I built Now I m so glad I gave it another chance I love the family love, friendship goals and the portrayal of depression.

    RATED 4.5 It s a weird smile, but it reaches his eyes and I bottle it And I put it in my ammo pack that s kept right next to my soul and Justine s spirit and Siobham s hope and Tara s passions Because if I m going to wake up one morning and not be able to get out of bed, I m going to need everything I ve got to fight this disease that could be sleeping inside of me i wasn t fair to this book the first time i read it i see that now at the time i read jellicoe road and i had such high expectations [...]

  29. Janina

    Right at the moment, I don t have a lot of time to read Mostly only on my daily train trip to and from uni I loathe this train trip It takes away almost three hours of my time Right now, if it s late, it means getting into contact with lots of drunken people because of this I hate openly drunken people who try to convince me to talk to them They scare me a little But Francesca made me appreciate my train time I was almost sad to get off because that mostly meant that my time with her and her fr [...]
