This scrapbook/diary is such a nice change of pace from the standard novel form. Told in letters, clippings, and typed diary entries, this is Frankie's life from 1920-1928. After graduating from high school in small town New Hampshire, and being swept up into her first indiscretion, we follow her ...

I highly recommend this book for any woman on your shopping list: it is simply delightful. Turning each page is like browsing through an antique shop (only without the dust!): every page a beautiful feast of vintage ads, art, fashion, etc., and the plot, while almost an afterthought to the images, i...

Ok, I confess, my 5 star rating is a bit gratuitous, but I just can't help myself.This 1920's coming of age story is told in Scrapbook form, and reads as the cross between a graphic novel and a diary. It was a fun, quick read, which along with it's unique premise will guarantee it a spot of my favo...

This is quite unique. A graphic novel, and it is a novel do not be fool by the pretty pictures, with a scrapbooking, vintage twist. It is the box that makes the novel in this case. The story is not new, girl want to go to college, can't no money, goes to work, meets bad boy, miracle happens, colleg...

I thought it was a very cute & entertaining 'girly' book that looks like a scrapbook made in the 1920s. Really enjoyed the scrapbook style & 'Frankie's' sense of humor. No huge surprises as far as storyline, but that's ok. If you enjoyed the movie "Midnight in Paris", you would probably enjoy this b...

A very interesting concept: a novel told in the form of a scrapbook, complete with 1920s era memorabilia. Frankie Pratt is a young woman from small-town New England who wins a scholarship to Vassar then moves to New York and, later, Paris to follow her dream of becoming a writer and finding love. Th...

Fun book-as the title says, it is a scrapbook, set in the 1920s. Loved the vintage photos, ads & articles. Word count is very low but there is a story.

Very clever concept. It's a novel told through a fictional scrapbook made up of real illustrations and clippings from the 1920s. I thought I would have a difficult time reading it as I'd be distracted by the images. It was easier than I thought but still a bit awkward when the pages were very busy. ...

I thumbed through this book at the bookstore, and was instantly charmed. Subtitled, 'a novel in pictures' , each page is a collage of vintage material - advertisements, illustrations, catalogue and magazine pages, telegrams, valetine's cards etc - and the type written text of the novel. The words an...
