    I think this book is really great. Louise is an amazing author, and she is wonderful to hear speak. If you get the chance, go see her. This book gives a different perspective on growing up in an Italian-American family, perhaps even a more realistic one. I have read and re-read the book, and am currently reading it for the third time. Highly reccomended.

    I began reading 'Vertigo' as an assigned reading requirement for a creative writing class and soon found myself reading far beyond assigned pages, wanted to delve further into the world Louise creates in this wonderful book! I recommend it to everyone. Her writing has changed how I see my own writing, and has become an inspiration to me. It saved me in many ways.
