Book Summary (via Goodreads): I am in the midst of a conundrum.
Viola is finally where she belongs—back home in Brooklyn, where there are no khakis or sherbet-colored sweaters and people actually think her yellow flats are cool. With two whole months of nothing to do but hang with her two best friends, Andrew and Caitlin, this is going to be the best break ever!
But her BFFAA, Andrew, has started acting weird around her, and a new boyfriend has her friend Caitlin ditching her every chance she gets. When Viola's roommates from Prefect Academy show up for a visit, she starts to wonder—is Brooklyn where she wants to stay? When a tragic event shakes everyone's world, Viola realizes it's not where she belongs that matters—it's who she's with that really counts.
In this heartwarming follow-up to bestselling author Adriana Trigiani's teen debut, Viola in Reel Life, Viola just may be ready to get out from behind her trusty video camera and take the starring role in her own life.
Well kids, this is my first book of 2015. There's been a lot of changes over the past year, and I am thinking about getting back into book blogging. It's going to be scaled back a lot, but I've returned to my love of reading, and would like to share my thoughts with all of you fellow book lovers! I read the first Viola book near the end of 2014 and fell in love with it. This second installment still has its sassy and fun moments, but I must say I enjoyed Viola in Reel Life -just- a touch more. Still if you're looking for a lighter read with lot's of artistic flair, this this for you! I hope author Trigiani will continue to write more of this series! It's simply adorable!
“I want to be closer to the sky. Closer to the pink moon. And closer to the stars that shine over South Bend, which turn out to be the very same ones that twinkle over Brooklyn.”
Cover Art Commentary:
I just love the covers in this series. Artsy, off-kilter, perfect.
