Possibilities of Sainthood, by Donna Freitas

In this sweet first-time story by author Donna Freitas we meet 15 year old Antonia Lucia Labella, who attends a Catholic School, helps out at the family's little Italian market, and has a crush on handsome Andy Rotellini. Donna loves keeping a diary about the saints, and passionately writes to the Vatican every month (for the past eight years!) asking them to create a new living saint - - and put her in the job!

This is a delightful first-time story by Donna Freitas, who teaches at Boston University, and herself grew up making homemade pasta with her Italian mother and grandmother!
