Saving Francesca

Saving Francesca

By  Melina Marchetta

Francesca is at the beginning of her second term in Year Eleven at an all boy's school that has just started accepting girls. She still misses her old friends, and, to make things worse, her mother has had a breakdown and can barely move from her bed.

But Francesca had not counted on the fierce loyalty of her new friends, or falling in love, or finding that it's within her power to bring her family back together.

From the internationally best-selling and award-winning author of Looking for Alibrandi, On the Jellicoe Road, The Piper's Son and the Lumatere Chronicles this is her much-loved novel told with humour, compassion and joy.
