"The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt is a literary bottle rocket--loaded with whimsy, pizzazz, and heart."
"Is it possible that I have just read/experienced/devoured the most delightful book ever published? Do not argue with me: There is magic here and genius."
"A ripping yarn of emancipated girlish adventure."
The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt is a visually stunning, totally unique, full-color novel in the form of a scrapbook, set in the burgeoning bohemian culture of the 1920s and featuring an endearing, unforgettable heroine. Caroline Preston, author of the New York Times Notable Book Jackie by Josie, uses a kaleidoscopic array of vintage memorabilia--postcards, letters, magazine ads, ticket stubs, catalog pages, fabric swatches, candy wrappers, fashion spreads, menus and more--to tell the tale of spirited and ambitious Frankie's remarkable odyssey from Vassar to Greenwich Village to Paris, in a manner that will delight crafters, historical fiction fans, and anyone who loves a good coming-of-age story ingeniously told.
