This is a great offer to read three books about real-to-life Mina Calvi, and Italian who moved to L.A. to be with her sister. She struggles with the new country, and always seems to find herself in the oddest situations. I like protagonists who are a bit quirky, and Mina is quirky! LOL And I love how the author puts humor in the story.
I wish I liked the main character but I don't. Mina's whole lot in life seems to be not listening to people who are trying to keep her out of trouble and hanging around people that get her into trouble. She has no friends but thinks she does and then gets upset when these so called friends have lied to her. She is totally self absorbed and it's amazing she lives through these books. The whole series with the boy friend showing up and leaving, showing up and leaving is boring and a sub plot device I have never cared for in books. I Didn't finish the third book as it was more of the same old stuff. Sorry, won't be reading any more about Mina.
