Saving Francesca by Melina MarchettaMOST OF MY friends now go to Pius Senior College, but my mother wouldnt allow it because she says the girls there leave with limited options and she didnt bring me up to have limitations placed upon me. If you know my mother, youll sense theres an irony there, based on the fact that she is the Queen of the Limitation Placers in my life.
Francesca battles her mother, Mia, constantly over whats best for her. All Francesca wants is her old friends and her old school, but instead Mia sends her to St. Sebastians, an all-boys school that has just opened its doors to girls. Now Francescas surrounded by hundreds of boys, with only a few other girls for company. All of them weirdos or worse.
Then one day, Mia is too depressed to get out of bed. One day turns into months, and as her family begins to fall apart, Francesca realises that without her mothers high spirits, she hardly knows who she is. But she doesnt yet realise that shes more like Mia than she thinks. With a little unlikely help from St. Sebastians, she just might be able to save her family, her friends, and especially herself.

Francesca is invited to a party and decides to attend with Siobhan and Justine. Tara isn't interested because she'd rather spend her time organizing her next political campaign. By the time Francesca arrives, everyone is wasted, including William Trombol. William sees her from the other side of the room, walks straight toward her, and kisses her hard on the mouth. Francesca is shocked but eagerly kisses him back. They spend the rest of the party kissing wildly, and Francesca notices Will's arms shaking. She pulls away from him, says, "Do that sober and I'll be impressed," and then walks away Page
