Additional Details

"For her graduation from high school in 1920, Frankie Pratt receives a scrapbook and her father's old Corona typewriter. Despite Frankie's dreams of becoming a writer, she must forgo a college scholarship to help her widowed mother. But when a mysterious Captain James sweeps her off her feet, her mother finds a way to protect Frankie from the less-than-noble intentions of her unsuitable beau. Through a kaleidoscopic array of vintage postcards, letters, magazine ads, ticket stubs, catalog pages, fabric swatches, candy wrappers, fashion spreads, menus, and more, we meet and follow Frankie on her journey in search of success and love."--from cover, p. [2]

Quirky and different

This is a story told through a scrapbook style using real vintage stuff to fake the book. There are words, but it is more like captions, and the pictures are really cool. It is fictional about a 1920's girl who goes to college and her life truly begins. Very fun and easy to read, but really good! I hope this author writes more.
