Charlotte wants to be a writer. When she finds an opportunity to go to Italy for the summer after high school to study under her idol, she jumps at the chance. She also plans on uncovering some facts about a long dead relative who was supposedly an author too. Once there, things are a bit strange and her idol may just in fact be a regular man.
My absolute favorite part of this book is that each chapter started with information about a suppressed female author. It was just a small paragraph each time but Deb Caletti thought enough about female writers to bring attention to the sometimes stolen glory of these women.
The story itself is a slow burn. I honestly thought it was a great coming of age story where the main character, Charlotte, learned that things are not always what they seem. This is a definite win. Well done!
Many thanks to Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this book.
