30 Days of Books

Day 04 – a book that reminds you of home

I’m definitely going to double up on my answers more than once throughout these 30 books, because I tend to obsess. A book that reminds me home is Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta. Not because it’s set in the same country (it’s not), or because I relate to the characters familial situation (I don’t), but because I relate so much to all the brain/mental stuff that Francesca goes through. I’ve read this book so many times and I still can’t get enough of it. I read it for the first time in grade 7 when I borrowed it from the library. For the next 3 years, I borrowed it over and over again because I couldn’t stop reading it. Finally, instead of constantly paying late fees, I bought my own copy. Now I just read it all the time. I don’t really know why this reminds me home, but it reminds me that I’m not alone. Melina Marchetta also wrote a sequel, called The Piper’s Son, which made me happier than anything.
