Read full description of the books:
MOST OF MY friends now go to Pius Senior College, but my mother wouldnâ€™t allow it because she says the girls there leave with limited options and she didnâ€™t bring me up to have limitations placed upon me. If you know my mother, youâ€™ll sense thereâ€™s 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 whatâ€™s best for her. All Francesca wants is her old friends and her old school, but instead Mia sends her to St. Sebastianâ€™s, an all-boysâ€™ school that has just opened its doors to girls. Now Francescaâ€™s surrounded by hundreds of boys, with only a few other girls for company. All of them weirdosâ€”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 realizes that without her motherâ€™s high spirits, she hardly knows who she is. But she doesnâ€™t yet realize that sheâ€™s more like Mia than she thinks. With a little unlikely help from St. Sebastianâ€™s, she just might be able to save her family, her friends, andâ€”especiallyâ€”herself.
