About the Book

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. But her best friend, Andrew, has started acting weird around her, and a new boyfriend has her friend Caitlin ditching her every chance she gets. Although Viola gets an internship on a Broadway show, nothing else is going as planned. When her roommates from Prefect Academy show up for a visit, Viola starts to wonder—is Brooklyn where she wants to stay? And 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.

Critical Praise

“An equally enjoyable follow-up to Viola in Reel Life.” — Booklist

Praise for Viola in Reel Life: “A cold, snowy winter, a ghost mystery, kisses, cookies, roommates, a video diary, a film competition, and Viola’s crack-me-up-every time observations all make this an endearing coming of age story…exceptionally fun.” — Richie's Picks

“Had us hooked on page one.” — Seventeen.com

“Best-selling adult author Trigiani nicely captures boarding-school bonding, adolescent female insecurities, and current teen trends. Fun, breezy, and full of subtle life lessons.” — Booklist

“Sarah Dessen for middle school…Trigiani deftly shows that teenage girls can be independent, have positive self–images, and be happy.” — Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“A sweet, character-driven story. Viola is very real, as are her feelings, hopes, desires, and dreams.” — School Library Journal
