#FridayReads A GIRL RETURNED by Donatello Di Pietrantonio, translated by Ann Goldstein “A simple premise that examines all the complexities of the experience of being a teenage girl, A Girl Returned is told in spare, straightforward prose. Our main character, the "arminuta," or "returned girl," is torn from the home she's always known, as an only child in an upper class coastal city, and sent back to live with her biological family. She experiences the chaos of teenagehood among the chaos of her new existence, where she's surrounded by siblings she doesn't know and a town where she is the outsider. A brilliant examination of familial ties, mother-daughter relationships, and class differences, as well as a memorable coming-of-age story.” - Jess
