I bet your daughter will have a great time in Rome, Florence is fantastic as well. We were told that our art trip will be to Paris, I was very annoyed. (I think it's a bit of a cliche, school trip to France, where should we go? Paris of course!) Lots of other great places in France but no one seems to know the names
The French detective novels sound good, I think I may have heard of Vargas. Possibly. For A2 we'll be reading Othello and Wuthering Heights for English lit, and then comparing them with others, so I think that I'm doing the Time Travellers Wife which is my favourite book.
