Francesca doesn’t really need saving, even though it seems her life is going down the loo. With the help of loyal friends, Francesca copes with being one of 30 female students at St. Sebastian’s (formerly, School for Boys), falling in love with one of the most irritatingly smug guys around, and dealing with her strong mother’s sudden breakdown. Rebecca Macauley pauses often, allowing the listener to absorb the strong emotions Francesca experiences and to catch a breath after laughing hard at the situations she gets into. While it may take a bit to get used to the accent of this Australian import, the universal story of a young woman finding her way translates in all cultures. M.M.O.
