Forget Nico: Falling for the Wrong Italian (The Italian Saga #3)Forget Nico: Falling for the Wrong Italian by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Forget Nico is a coming of age love story of Leda, a tom boyish girl who is desperately in love with a cool boy at school. I did not know that the story is not the first in the series, so it took me a while to adjust to the pace of the book and the characters. The book predominantly deals with all the elements of adolescence, crushes, embarrassments, successes and failures.
The teens think they have figured it out all, but how they react to everything happening around them and their imperfections is very insightful. This is typically recommended for teenagers, who read books of the type of Adrian Mole.
The use of Italian words in the expression and conversation adds a flavor to the book. It’s a very fast read, but though they say this book is a standalone. I felt this book picks up from it’s prequels. The personality of the lead character is already well established, and this book defines her loyalty to someone whom she had liked a lot, and now he is in trouble and she is struggling with her emotions to believe it or not.
Overall, a fast pace light read !
