Publisher's Summary

Il bel viso della bambina Giovanna si è trasformato, sta diventando quello di una brutta adolescente. Ma è proprio così? E in quale specchio bisogna guardare per ritrovarsi e salvarsi? La ricerca di un nuovo volto oscilla tra due Napoli consanguinee che però si temono e si detestano: la Napoli di sopra, che s'è attribuita una maschera fine, e quella di sotto, che si finge smodata, triviale. Giovanna oscilla tra alto e basso, in una città che pare non offrire né risposte né scampo.

Just another beautiful, incredible story of love and loss

Fantastico, magistralmente letto e interpretato da Anna Bonaiuto. Su una Napoli vivida e struggente, con rimandi all’infanzia e all’adolescenza di tutti noi.

Loved this book!

I so enjoyed my first audible book! I have always loved Ferrante 's work, and having it read to me was a true treat. The reader really brought the story to life. While the book was long at 93 ( I think) chapters, I was sorry to have it end.

l'età sbagliata

non mi è piaciuta la fine
ma il racconto è avvincente anche se un po' esagerato

A well read depressing story

There is no doubt that the author can write stories that can get you hooked and make you want to read /listen more. This book was well read; it described the life of a teenager and her issues. Very dramatic and depressing. Maybe I could just not relate to it. The end is weak.
