Finding Leda, the Science of Happiness is the fifth book in The Italian Saga by Gaia B. Amman. It is a Young Adult/New Adult story- full of all the highs and lows of Leda’s journey.
We’ve followed Leda through the previous books/stories, and have been there every step of the way as she traverses transitioning from childhood and into a young adult, graduating high school, and now following her through college. Leda throws herself into her studies, discovering much about herself and what she wants out of life along the way.
Even though this story could be read as a standalone- I highly recommend reading the previous books as knowing what happens there will elevate your enjoyment of this story.
This book is full of drama, emotions, college life, Leda’s ‘rules’ to live by, science references, love, humour, pop-culture, self discovery, life lessons, and much more. As with the other books in the series- this is a fictionalized memoir of the author’s younger years/life- set against the backdrop of Italy in the 1990’s/2000’s.
On to the next instalment…
Thank you, Ms. Amman!
