My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have had the pleasure of reading most of the other Italian Teens novels from Gaia B Amman and I have really enjoyed them. I always know I am in for a bit of traveling treat when I pick up a novel of hers. She manages to write with such passion and flare that you often feel as if you are right there with the main characters as they experience things first hand. This one was so unique though and I loved the story we got about Nico and Leda. Leda is very much like myself so it was neat to read about a relatable teen female lead in the times I spent most of my years as a teen, the 90s. You were never once bored and the underlying story line flowed beautifully. I look forward to seeing what we will get in the future from Gaia B Amman!

Forget Nico: Falling for the Wrong Italian (Italian Teens novel 1, The Italian Saga) by Gaia B. Amman. I love this series. Its the third book in the series and its the continuing saga of Leda and her friends especially Nico who she really likes. She gets the attention of other boys but not the one she wants. This story is full of teen angst and all the other junk that goes with being a teenager. Nico is also in trouble and Leda can’t believe that he would do what they are saying he has done. Nico is feeling totally alone and his brooding and shady actions leave Leda feeling like she is not sure of her feelings. Torn between wanting him and feeling like he’s being a jerk Leda is just as confused as ever. This book just made me relive my teenage years and remember how horrible this stage of life can be. This book can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading them all in order just to get the basics of everyone down. I really enjoy this series and can’t wait for the next book .

Forget Nico, by Gaia B Amman is an Italian teens novel centred around the main character Leda and her relationships especially with sexy teen heartthrob and bad boy Nico. Nico is a constant in her mind so much you feel like you are Leda mind at times and can relate to her. You can feel the magic within this book. It captures perfectly teenage angst and the independent spirit that accompanies it!

Forget Nico: Falling for the Wrong Italian (Italian Teens novel 1, The Italian Saga) by Gaia B. Amman is a wonderfully written story that I found myself lost in the pages and couldn’t stop reading till I finished. Wow what a story, it definitely made me think about to my teenage years and I don’t miss them especially all the drama. I’ve read several other books by this Author and I mist say this one ranks up there as one of my favorites. This story is about Leda (Lee) and Nico and the struggles of young Romance. She’s a young girl trying to deal with having feelings for nico and her complicated friendships. I found myself a bit emotional and like I was right there along side them throughout the whole book. Find out what happens next in this must read. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Forget Nico: Falling For The Wrong Italian by Gaia B Amman’s is the third book in The Italian Saga and the first in the Italian Teens series. Leda is a typical teen girl and this is a continuation of her story. What happens when she catches the attention of Alex? Does she have to forget Nico? Amman handles the characters with honesty and humor. Even though set in Italy this story is relatable to anyone who has handled teen strife. I really enjoy these stories and this can even be read as a standalone. I look forward to reading more of Leda’s adventures and seeing her life through the Italian lens.

by Gaia B Amman

I really enjoyed reading this coming of age book. All the emotions, insecurities, and hormones that come with being a teenager were definitely felt by Leda and her friends. This story made me think back to when I was that age and I remember all those same feelings. Leda has liked Nico for as long as she can remember but does he feel the same way? These are questions coming from a teenager whose emotions are all over the place. Nico is what is thought of as a bad boy player with no feelings, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. There are some serious topics talked about in this book and it made me think about all things kids are dealing with. I really enjoyed reading this story. I have read other books by this author and I have always liked them very much and it’s the same with one as well. I highly recommend this book and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

This is a great coming of age for teens and young adults. You may even find some history in the Italian lifestyle.

Leda is your typical teenage girl. This book follows her struggles and triumphs of school, church and friends. You will get to read all about the teens she is associated with. As well as her struggle with making the right choices. It was so easy to relate to her and her feelings. Which makes for a great Coming of Age story.💖

Gaia B Amman has written this story with knowledge of Italy and the trying trials of growing up. I love her characters and the fact she follows them closely. You will experience for yourself, those same feelings you had growing to adulthood. I recommend this series be read by all teens. I also recommend it be read in the order it was written. I won’t give you spoilers. But… I will say it is a must read. Thank You Gaia B Amman for providing such a great series for our teens and young adults. Well Done!!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a teen love story between Leda and Nico.

Leda is a young girl growing up, facing all the things a young woman has to go through including finding her place in the world and finding love.

Leda falls in love with Nico, however Nico is a bad boy. They used to be friends but they grew further apart until Nico acts so strange she doesnt recognise him anymore. After Nico does something terrible to the school he is sent away to a different school.

But this doesnt stop Leda thinking about him and wanting to be with him. Is it too late for them? Is Nico to far gone or can Leda save him? Would she be better off forgetting Nico and moving on.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forget Nico, by Gaiai B Amman is an Italian teens novel centred around the main character Leda and her relationships especially with sexy teen heartthrob and bad boy Nico. This story is full of teen angst, emotions and changing teen feelings along with Italian gangs, romance and redemption. The story is more poignant in my view as it’s based on a true story and is interwoven with real Italian culture and Italian words (although mostly swear words)!
When a fire is started in the library at Leda and Nico’s high school the evidence points towards brooding Nico but Leda can’t believe he is behind it, but is she right to fight for him?
I love the character Leda, she’s referred to as a tomboy throughout the book, so much so that when she does wear a skirt everyone is shocked and comments on it. Leda is a very likeable and realistic teenage girl and one I could relate to when I was a teenager. She has the usual teenage girl worries, complicated friendships, hormones, puberty, weight issues and peer pressures as smoking weed is mentioned a lot. Sadly early on in the book Leda self-harms, I felt this was dealt with very sensitively by the author. The book is full of great characters all of which have enough of a back story that you feel involved in their lives, Nico is a typical attractive bad boy teen, then there is Leda’s friend Alex with his own problems and a host of female friends.
Amman’s detailed descriptions of the Italian landscape really brings the Italian summer to life, I found myself escaping into the sights, sounds and scents of Leda’s Italy. This book is part of a series but I felt it also worked well as a stand alone story. Although set in 90’s Italy it reminded me of my own teenage years and the dramas we all face at that age. It is beautifully written and the narrative flows easily making it an addictive book to read. I look forward to reading other books in her Italian Teens series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forget Nico by Gaia B. Amman a fabulous four-star read. This is number three in the Italian Saga series, but number one in the Italian Teens novels, I have read the whole Italian saga so don’t know if it could be read as stand-alone as I have read them as the series and enjoyed them as such. This is such a fun and interesting read, and when you realise that it’s the authors own story, it just makes it that much crazier. This was so much fun for me as I was a similar age in the 90s and visited Italy, so this brought back some fond memories for me, the only issue I had was that I don’t remember there being so much teenage angst while I was there. This author has a great story to tell and everyone should give it a go.
