April Lindner might be the queen of her own type Rock Fiction, which sounds stupid until you realize that there are probably others who try to incorporate Rock Fiction so effortlessly into remakes of classics, like she did in Jane. Here’s the description of her latest book:

While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food…and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her “vacation flirtation.” But just because summer is over doesn’t mean Lucy and Jesse are over, too.

In this coming-of-age romance, April Lindner perfectly captures the highs and lows of a summer love that might just be meant to last beyond the season.

A street musician!

But I gotta say, after Jane and Catherine, I’m not sure what classic novel this is reinventing. Anyone? Maybe it’d have helped if I’d actually read some classics.

Classic or no, this has a lot of potential, so bring it. Do people still backpack through Italy? I want to do that, I think. Anyone know how?
