Kissing in Italian

We rated this book:


Violet gets the chance of a lifetime when she goes to Italy with a summer study program. But her adventure brings up all sorts of questions, like: why are there paintings with her face on them in the museums? Why is she so different from her pale faced, blonde family? Could Luca really be her half-brother? Did her mom cheat on her dad? Why on earth can’t everyone get along? Of course, a lot of those questions were probably asked in the first book, Flirting in Italian, but I didn’t read that one, so I’m not sure. But the answers are definitely found here, and more.

I liked this book. I couldn’t understand the bits of Italian put in, but they usually put in translations. I don’t know what I might have missed of Violet’s story, from missing the first book, but it made pretty good sense, anyway. It was kind of weird to think that the cute Italian boy she liked might actually be her brother, but it was fun to follow along and try to figure out what was really going on. If you like a little mystery with a love story, you might like this book, too.
