Scrapbookers and graphic novel fans alike will get a kick out of The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston. It's a fictional memoir of a girl in the 1920s, illustrated with full-color collages.

Our reviewer elaborates: "With postcards, news clippings, ticket stubs, receipts, catalog pages and drawings that look like illustrations from vintage fashion magazines, Preston tells the coming-of-age story of Frankie, a bright young girl who . . . manages to take care of herself in a world where most girls like her just want to be taken care of."

The book trailer from Ecco gives a little introduction to this unique novel:
