The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lila and Lenu are now 16 and their lives are diverging. Lila us newly married to Stefano Carracci while Lenu is in school, has a crush on the introspective Nino but is still dating Antonio.

This book has so many important and haunting themes: marriage, sex, coming of age, rape, abuse, education, power struggles between men and women, machismo, family.

Lila and Lenu’s friendship is real and immersive. I struggle to believe that this is fiction. The people and situations are so nuanced- like real life. I can’t wait to read book 3 & 4.

Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan novels are so in depth and real that you know the author speaks from experience. She loved there. She knows these people.
