Cute Summer Read with a Twist
If you want to learn some Italian while reading a cute book, this is a great choice. The story follows one girl out of the four that have gone to Italy for the summer. Violet is there with an ulterior motive. She’s seeking out information about a painting of a girl that looks just like her. She wants to know if it could be an ancestor of hers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Violet looks Italian, but her mother and father are the farthest from it, still she can’t bring herself to ask if she they are her biological family. I find the fact that she is crazy close to her mom, but unable to ask this a little hard to digest. Granted, her mom seems fragile, but it’s something that she should know and feel the right to ask about.
The other girls are completely different from Violet and from one another, not just in looks but in the way they were raised. The two American girls knew each other before this trip, but weren’t really friends, so there is still some difference between them. Quickly they bond over their mutual stance against the daughter of the woman they are in Italy to stay with. The girls all have their different reasons for being there and none of them seem to be able to resist the Italian boys.
It’s definitely a great summer read, with a little more in depth of a storyline and a twist. I didn’t realize that this wasn’t a stand alone book and I was surprised when I was on the last page and that was it. I am desperately in want of the next book already; I need to know how everything turns out!
