Looking for Alibrandi

Published by Penguin Books Australia, 1992

For as long as Josephine Alibrandi can remember, it’s just been her, her mum, and her grandmother. Now it’s her final year at a wealthy Catholic private girls’ school where the nuns couldn’t be any stricter. But that doesn’t seem to stop all kinds of men from coming into Josie’s life, including her father!

Caught between the old-world values of her Italian nonna Katia, the no-nonsense wisdom of her mother Cristina, and the boys who continue to mystify her, Josie is on the ride of her life. This will be the year she falls in love, the year she discovers the secrets of her family’s past - and the year she sets herself free.
