Friday Finds: Viola in Reel Life

Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.

The blurb from the publisher:

I’m marooned.


Left to rot in boarding school . . .

Viola doesn’t want to go to boarding school, but somehow she ends up at an all-girls school in South Bend, Indiana, far, far away from her home in Brooklyn, New York. Now Viola is stuck for a whole year in the sherbet-colored sweater capital of the world.


There’s no way Viola’s going to survive the year—especially since she has to replace her best friend Andrew with three new roommates who, disturbingly, actually seem to like it there. She resorts to viewing the world (and hiding) behind the lens of her video camera.

Boarding school, though, and her roommates and even the Midwest are nothing like she thought they would be, and soon Viola realizes she may be in for the most incredible year of her life.
But first she has to put the camera down and let the world in.

Not my usual cup of tea, eh? Very Valentine was my first Trigiani novel and I loved that so I am looking forward to this one which is scheduled to hit bookstores in September.

What did you find this week?
