Melissa & Kasho (1/9)

List item

This book has a unique angle given that it is set in Italy in the 1950s and addresses timely topics including: sexual assault, emotional abuse, and the protagonist developing strength to stand up for herself by the end of the story.

Moreover, this book is unique because the main character, Melissa, finds confidence in herself through an unlikely source – a ghost. The ghost named Kasho teaches her how to stand up to her parents and her sexual assaulter. That being said, this book will inspire readers, as it demonstrates the strength women have and what they can accomplish when they have a strong sense of self-worth.

  1. An amazing story of love across time, friendship and learning about one’s own self worth, even in the face of horrific circumstances. An outstanding read!

  2. A poetic story of friendship, of giving your best to humanity, and of being inspired by kindness, strength and love.

  3. I wasn’t sure I would like this book but I was told about it by someone who never leads me astray with literature, and she was on the money! This book is a fantastic novel. I sayed at home shut away for 3 days until I soaked up every word!
