Título original: Fazendo meu filme 1 : a estrela Fani. Shooting my Life's Script 1: Fani's Premiere is a charming book, one of those we read compulsively, and miss after we're done. It's impossible not to connect with Fani, her discoveries, her aspirations, so typical of a teenager. This is a light-hearted and fun story that captivates the reader with every page. Whether it's her relationship with her family, with herself and the world; whether it's the everyday life with her friends, at school and at parties; or the relationship with her best friend and confidant - everything changes in Estefânia's life when the opportunity comes to live overseas as an exchange student for one year. The ever so revealing talks on-line and on the phone, as well as the notes frequently passed around in class, begin to cover a new subject: the upcoming trip. This is what this book is about: the fascinating universe of a teenage girl bursting with expectations, facing the conflict between carrying on with her daily life with friends, family, studies, and her new-found love, or risk going to another country and dive into a world filled with new possibilities. The best scenes in Fani's life may be yet to come.
