From the Publisher's Website:
From the author of the New York Times bestselling adult novel Very Valentine comes this first book in a fresh new teen series, about a group of boarding school friends navigating the ups and downs of living together, falling in love, and following their dreams.
Shipped off to boarding school in South Bend, Indiana, city girl and aspiring filmmaker Viola Chesterton feels out of place with her three new roommates. Missing her life back home, Viola is tempted to hide behind her video camera all year. But first impressions are often wrong, and soon Viola realizes she’s in for the most incredible year of her life—if only she can put the camera down and let the world in.
USA Today calls powerhouse adult author Adriana Trigiani “one of the reigning queens of women’s fiction.” Viola in Reel Life follows on the heels of Adriana's debut on the Harper list, the instant New York Times bestselling adult novel Very Valentine, and she has now brought to life—with a spot-on teen voice—a new series about four friends finding their place at boarding school and the world at large.
Released September 1st 2009
Ok so there are TONS of things that make this book sound appealing. First of all, I've read a few of the author's adult titles and liked them so I bet her YA would also be fun. Second, boarding school group of friends! Third, the main character is an aspiring filmmaker! And lastly, it's the beginning of a series! Consider me EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!
