Publisher's Summary

An Italian Adventure, It will all make (less) sense when you grow up
The audiobook with an Italian accent!
A humorous coming of age tale of friendship and sisterhood for adults and teens alike recommended for fans of Jandy Nelson, John Green, Neil Gaiman and Sherman Alexie.
Italy, the late 80s. Leda is a bookish 10-year-old tomboy. Her life turns upside down when shady Nico moves to the North from Sicily. Determined not to let the bully ruin her life, Leda is dragged through a tornado of adventures that will transform both kids in the face of first crushes, weird adults, and family drama...
This humorous and insightful coming of age tale will show you the Italy you never imagined, an exhilarating mix of sensuality, religion, and superstition set against the gorgeous backdrop of the serene countryside, the Alps, and the enchanting Island of Sardinia.
The audiobook is the first in a series following the same characters throughout their lives.
