Episode Info:

Order yourself a cappuccino and grab a seat in the good room, because it's time to talk about the quintessential coming-of-age novel (and according to Laura, "the greatest piece of Australian literature ever written") Looking for Alibrandi, by Melina Marchetta.

Serving up complex characters, multigenerational stories and a PAINFULLY accurate depiction of what it feels like to be a teen, there's a reason this book is a classic. Let's find out if it's as good as Laura and Fiona remember, if Ben can get on board as a first-time reader, and whether Pia Miranda ever agreed to watch the movie with us (hi, Pia, we love you). 

PLUS find out what we're reading in April.
