My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forget Nico: Falling For The Wrong Italian is the first book in the Italian Teens (Italian Saga) by Gaia B Amman, This is a young adult romance set in Italy in 1990. It was the first time reading this author and it’s also not a genre that I read much of but once I got into the story I really enjoyed it.
Leda Balni is 13 years old and has been friends with Nico since they were 9. She’s loved him since then but now he’s being cold and distant towards her. Everyone keeps telling her to forget Nico but the heart wants what the heart wants and she just can’t let any other guy in.
Set in high school, you really get to see just how awful teenagers behave towards each other. My goodness they are so nasty towards each other. If you do not fit in with the ‘in crowd’ then life can be really difficult.
This is a really interesting read into the mind of a teenager who is not little miss popular. It all becomes even worse for Leda when Nico ends up in trouble and is sent away.
Can Leda ‘forget Nico’ and move on? What will happen to Nico? This is a great young adult read and I think would be very eye-opening for teenagers to read.
