She resorts to viewing the world (and hiding) behind the lens of her video camera. Boarding school, though, and her roommates and even the Midwest are nothing like she thought they would be, and soon Viola realizes she may be in for the most incredible year of her life. But first she has to put the camera down and let the world in.

A New Direction
For those familiar with Trigiani's work, this is a new direction, closer to Young Adult Literature. Although not my "need," the story was still enjoyable to listen to. Although a bit on the rose-colored glasses side, the characters are interesting and well developed. Viola goes from hating every second and being obviously petulant to reaping the effects of bad behavior and recognizing the need for change. Narration was very well done.

Meant for teenagers
Is there anything you would change about this book?
No, I would not change anything, but I would not market the book for adults… it is really a pre-teen or teen read.
If you’ve listened to books by Adriana Trigiani before, how does this one compare?
This one was light and not unenjoyable, but meant for a much younger audience.
Have you listened to any of Emily Eiden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, haven't listened to Emily Elden before.
Did Viola in Reel Life inspire you to do anything?
I can't say the book inspired me to do anything in particular other than to judge people by their moral values rather than their looks. Viola had a brief relationship with a boy in the book and was taken by the fact that he was her first boyfriend and very good looking. He turned out to be a selfish creep. She wisely separated herself from him once she saw who he really was.
Any additional comments?
