Editorial Reviews


I simply love everything in this book and a think this is a story for everyone, and I mean everyone. For full grown ups and for the ones today are the same age as Leda. --Clarica --Amazon

Very true to my experience of being a teenager in Italy. Reading about Leda's adventures brought me back to my childhood/adolescence and put a smile on my face. The story is sweet and captivating, highly addictive book!-- Marilena P --Amazon

it was amazing!!! I have never laughed so hard in my life.--Zarsanga Jalalzai --Goodreads

About the Author

Gaia B Amman was born and raised in Italy. She moved to the United States in her twenties to pursue her PhD in molecular biology. She's currently a Professor of biology at D'Youville College in Buffalo, New York, where she was voted "the professor of the month" by her students. Her research and commentaries have been published in prestigious peer-reviewed international journals including Nature. A bookworm from birth, she wrote throughout her childhood and won two short story competitions in Italy in her teens. Gaia is an avid traveler and many of her adventures are an inspiration for her fiction. Mostly she is passionate about people and the struggles they face to embrace life. Her highest hope is to reach and help as many as she can through her writing as well as her teaching. She authored the Italian Saga, an irreverent series of humorous and insightful young adult novels taking place against the gorgeous backdrop of Northern Italy. The books, light-hearted and funny at first sight, deal with issues like sexuality, divorce, friendship, abuse, first love and self discovery.
