Viola doesn't want to go to boarding school, but somehow she ends up at an all-girl school in South Bend, Indiana. Her boarding school is far away from her home in Brooklyn, New York. There is no way that she is going to survive a whole year here. She is going to miss her best friend Andrew and Caitlin. She now has to replace it with her three new roommates, who actually like it. Most of the time, Viola is hidden behind her video camera, but what happens when she puts her camera down and starts living her life.
This is the first book that I have read of Adriana Trigiani, but it won't be my last. Her writing was witty and amazing. I was laughing for most of the book. I was really glad that Viola adjusted to boarding school. Suzanne, Marisol and Romy were amazing roommates. They reminded me a lot of friends that I had as a freshmen. Trigiani was able to bring Andrew's personality and Jared was also interesting. I am definitely going to have to read her other books soon. It was a great coming of age novel and I really enjoyed it. I recommend checking it out.
