Four girls. One magical, and possibly dangerous Italian summer. Family mysteries, ancient castles, long hot nights of dancing under the stars . . . and, of course, plenty of gorgeous Italian boys!
I’ve been to Italy. Stayed there for two years. Spoke their language. Played with my best friend Giulia. Italy was amazing! I never knew though, about those etiquettes they learn in Flirting In Italian. I mean, I was a kid. *snorts* We don’t learn etiquettes when we’re a child. Maybe my mom did, but then she did so many things(she’s talented. She knits, sew, paints. My mom’s A-MAZING!:D).
If you know me at all, you would know how much I LURVE family secrets + castles. They make the perfect match! And Flirting In Italian is just that!
Violet saw her kind-twin-but-not-really in a portrait in a museum in London. When she found this summer course online to Italy, she just have to join it as she was really curious about the painting and wanted to know more.
You see, here is when things went a little twisted. Violet and her mom is UNSEPARATEABLE. They’re very tight. Violet, without a doubt, knows that she wasn’t adopted. I mean, if she is, her mom would’ve told her by then. I mean, she’s not that typical troubled teen. In fact, her life is so much more uncomplicated than mine. But then, how on earth there can be someone who looks EXACTLY like her in Italy from a royal family? I know right? Exactly.
I really don’t get those bad reviews on Flirting In Italian. I mean, I couldn’t stop reading it! It was SO addictive! The boys(Luca! *sigh*), the lessons, the language, the dramas. There’s one thing though, I really thought this was a standalone. So I’m not really sure of this book as a series. But we’ll see! ‘Cause I TOTALLY need more Luca di Vesperi in my life!
