Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Jellicoe Road
by Melina Marchetta
Genre: Family, Mystery, Romance
Published: 2006
Hardback: 419 pages
Rating: 5

Inspiration: I was intrigued with the review from Persnickety Snark's YA podcast.

Description from book:
Abandoned by her drug-addicted mother at the age of eleven, high school student Taylor Markham struggles with her identity and family history at a boarding school in Australia.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: solace
I loved how the Jellicoe Road story unfolds. The first half of the book is clouded in mystery with dream sequences, stories within the story and a main character who is at odds. Then as reality sets in for the main character, we get to finally understand what is what and who is who. A bit of romance is thrown into the mix that make the characters even more likable.
