Laugh, cry, and feel happy.
This book starts off with Francesca having to transfer schools from St. Stella to St. Sebastians. St. Sebastians is filled with boys and has changed to being a co-ed school, though the girls don't get much from the change. Well, they do have the priority of rolling their eyes constantly because boys just act like boys.
St. Sebastians is a pretty strange school with the weirdest boys, but once you get to know of the school, it's such a family school where it feels like everyone knows everyone. And the guys in that school just totally reminded me of the guys in Drumline because guys are idiots but they can be sweet if they try hard enough. XD
Francesca herself was a very broken person. She...her feelings and mine matched. A lot. I remember that feeling that she had. We might not have went through the same things, but I've had that feeling. That feeling that if someone would just listen, you would tell them everything. And to know that it will get better.
Saving Francesca is a book filled hope. Hope is all we need. And that was all Francesca needed, in saving herself.
