The Yearbook by @CarolMasciola #Review #Giveaway

THE YEARBOOK by Carol Masciola

WHAT'S THE YEARBOOK ABOUT?
Misfit teen Lola Lundy falls asleep in a storage room in her high school library and wakes up to find herself 80 years in the past. The Fall Frolic dance is going full blast in the gym, and there she makes an instant connection with the brainy and provocative Peter Hemmings, class of ’24. His face is familiar, and she realizes she’s seen his senior portrait in a ragged old yearbook in the storage room. By the end of the dance, Lola begins to see a way out of her disastrous Twenty First Century life: She’ll make a new future for herself in the past. But major mental illness lies in Lola’s family background. Has she slipped through a crack in time, or into an elaborate, romantic hallucination based on the contents of an old yearbook?
Carol Masciola was a first-place winner of the PEN/West Literary Award in Journalism and a former reporter for the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register (California). Her feature screenplay The Fiery Depths, a supernatural thriller set in a haunted convent in the Alps, is in development with Clever Girl Productions, Los Angeles.





This book was weird.  The way it starts out feels more like a dream.  I was waiting for Lola to wake up. But well she never did.  The entire first few chapters had this feel to me.  Once Lola was transported to the past the book picked up and she found her place.  It was nice to see her bloom into her character.  You could really tell she found the right place for her.  For those who care this one doesnt give a lot of info on how it all happened it just does.  And I for one don't really care about the mechanics of how it happened because in this story it really didn't matter.  There was also a bout of instal-love but again in this story it worked well.  

So the only real issue I had was that dream like way the book was written.
