Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Saving Francesca - Melina Marchetta This is a review from reading this book for the second time. I just reread [b:The Piper's Son|7417780|The Piper's Son|Melina Marchetta|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1333662548s/7417780.jpg|9362085] and then I just had to go back and reread [b:Saving Francesca|82434|Saving Francesca|Melina Marchetta|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1327865374s/82434.jpg|18042740] right after. There is just so much care and love put into bringing these characters alive, giving each of them their own distinct personalities, and making you fall in love with them. There is an honesty and realness to Marchetta's writing that I absolutely adore. Just please, never stop giving us stories about this group of characters.
