    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the storyline. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. It definately was not what I expected it to be.

    My favorite scene is the scene with Cora, the main character, and the "german" in the diner.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved the fact that there are a lot of historical events that are explained in the book. Considering the time frame that the book takes place, there are so many events to cover and I thought that the author did a very good job in covering some of well known and not as well known thoughts, feelings and events that occurred. I would and have recommended this book for a good read.:)
