Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

     Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch takes place in Italy. The main characters are Carolina and Lorenzo. Carolina’s mom recently died and she was sent to live with her ”dad” Howard, who works in a graveyard. Howard is not Carolina’s real dad. In Italy, Carolina meets Lorenzo, who is half italian like Carolina.

     I really liked this book because it was a romance and is about half Italian teenagers who end up dating. I really like the fact that the book is about a girl and a boy who set out to find the girl’s real father after reading her mother’s diary. I don’t relate to this because I’m single and don’t like anyone, but my best friend does. She relates to the romantic part but not the diary and father part. She has liked this boy for about a year and when she got into middle school, on her first month, she told him about how she felt. Now they are dating just like Lorenzo and Carolina.
