A refreshing story about a young teenager who must find her way at her new school. In Viola's eyes, Prefect Academy is so far away from her idealized Brooklyn/Manhattan world she knows that Indiana will never live up to her expectations. On her first day with camera in hand, she meets her roommates and has an unexpected encounter that impacts her school year. This line sums up the story... "It's like PA is filled with girls who have most of what they need in this world, but somehow, there's something missing, and it's like we were sent here to find it."

I'm thinking this might be one that Libby would enjoy. Kind of cute. Freshmen at a boarding school trying to figure out life away from home.

Fabulous tween/teen romance/chick lit. I love Viola and recommend this as a Sarah Dessen read-alike.
