Frankie by Shivaun Plozza was one of my most anticipated read this year by an Australian author, it just sounded like my kind of book and it was. Frankie was a heartbreaking, heart-warming and absorbing contemporary that captures the reader from the first page. Frankie follows protagonist Frankie Vega as she goes on a journey of self-discovery, more heartbreak and finding her place.

Even thought at times it was a bit strained, it worked quite well for the situation that they were both in. The romance was such a little piece of Frankie, but it was beautifully done. There wasn’t need for a bubbling romance, but the way that Plozza handle it was perfect. Nate was intense and intriguing and capture Frankie in a way no way else had before. It was slightly there, but it did add to both the story and the characterisation of Frankie. I adored that Frankie was set in Melbourne. It’s my home, and sometimes it does get boring when books are all set in the same place or places that I have no clue about. Even though I don’t live in Collingwood, I know how it looks and feels so it was really interesting. Plozza has captured Melbourne perfectly. Overall, Frankie by Shivaun Plozza is a brilliant debut novel that captured my heart. It’s a story of heartbreak, belonging, finding yourself and what it is to be family. It captures Melbourne as Melbourne from the language to the setting, it brings to light that sometimes when you think that you are alone, you are not and all that you need to do is let them in. Frankie by Shivaun Plozza is a must
