Sobre o Autor
A bookworm from birth, she wrote throughout her childhood and won two short story competitions in Italy in her teens. Gaia is an avid traveler, and many of her adventures are an inspiration for her fiction. Mostly she is passionate about people and the struggles they face to embrace life. Her highest hope is to reach and help as many as she can through her writing and her teaching. She authored the Indie Author Guide, the LGBTQ sci-fi fantasy Linked-Will Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?, The Italian Saga, a series of four novels that follows Leda's adventures from childhood through the end of high school, and the Sonder Series, of which you just read volume one. The books, light-hearted and funny at first sight, deal with issues like sexuality, divorce, friendship, abuse, first love, and self discovery.
Among Amman's favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Jandy Nelson, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Antoine de Saint Exupèry.

I began thinking I was just going to hate Leda. It started out, in the beginning, explaining why the small g is used instead of the capital G in God. Being religious myself I thought....oh great...another book like far too many. Then I hated how she was with Claudio. BUT, I ended up LOVING this book. I didn't want it to end. Days later and another novel already read in the meantime, I still can't stop thinking about this one. And though I never read the first 4 I didn't feel I needed to in order to follow the story. I fell terribly in love with both Leda and Sergio. Who knew. They could have been very annoying with the running away from each other...in turn. However, they were just like so many in real life just like them at that age. Oh boy I remember well! And while I'm a homeschool mother who wouldn't allow my teen daughter to read this, I sure enjoyed it. It was steamy without making me feel uncomfortable (some are just way too adult and go too far)...at all! I was thinking the addition to the lesbian character was going to bug me as well. That's super popular lately. And always feel like it's added just to push an agenda. But it was very well done and I didn't feel I heard the author's agenda in it all like I do with so many books I review lately. Overall this was just a great story and I can't wait to read the next one. Enjoy!
I love the set of rules Leda comes up with throughout the course of the book and the fact that they’re also gathered together at the end of the book for easy reference. There are a few awkwardly phrased sentences but, overall, there is some beautiful writing. The language is rich and full of scientific metaphors and similes. The book acts as a soundtrack of the times and is full of fun references to 1990s pop culture. It also brings back all those feelings of discovering first love. My one complaint is that some of the names are too similar: Leda, Lexi, Elena.
While it’s not technically necessary to read the earlier books in the series (I read the first two), knowledge of Leda’s life in her primary and high school years would greatly enhance the reading experience.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
