Passion Blue, by Victoria Strauss

14843862

Set in the Italian Renaissance, this YA novel focuses on teenager Guilia, who is sent to a convent against her will. Guilia makes for a fierce and determined heroine, though she makes some colossal mistakes that the adults among us will see coming a mile off. The setting is wonderful, as are the female role models. A neat read, for 16 and up.
