FRANKIE BY SHIVAUN PLOZZA BOOK REVIEW
Frankie Vega is angry. Just ask the guy whose nose she broke. Or the cop investigating the burglary she witnessed, or her cheating ex-boyfriend or her aunt who’s tired of giving second chances…When a kid shows up claiming to be Frankie’s half brother, it opens the door to a past she doesn’t want to remember. And when that kid goes missing, the only person willing to help is a boy with stupidly blue eyes … and secrets of his own. Frankie’s search for the truth might change her life, or cost her everything.
Frankie was such a cool character to read about. She was angry, sassy and sarcastic and she was very relatable to read about as I know a lot of people that are like Frankie (sadly I myself am not like her). Frankie was easy to love and was so much fun to read through her point of view, making the book a very fast read.
The setting of the book was also set in Melbourne which is a place I have been to many times and so I feel like I knew the setting a lot better than I sometimes do in books and it was just a really awesome feeling to be able to have such a vivid picture of the book setting as I knew so much about Melbourne. (YAY FOR OZ YA)
The storyline was very flowing, it was very fast paced and the writing style was very lovely and was easy for the reader to get addicted to (and cause late night reading and no sleep… oops)
Overall, this book was a very fast paced, enjoyable read. With a very loveable and quirky character and was such a good debut novel! Can not wait to read more of Shivaun’s work sometime in the future!
STAR RATING: 4.5/5 STARS
