Camera Girl is a wonderful, nonfiction, and biographical account of the young adulthood of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy's life from 1949 to 1953. It brings to cinematic life Jackie’s years as a young, single woman trying to figure out who she wanted to become.
The author focuses on her arrival in Paris with a new Leica camera for a junior year at Smith College’s study-abroad program. Learning French, traveling abroad, her interest in photography and illustration, her passion for writing, and ultimately becoming the "Inquiring Camera Girl" for the Washington Times-Herald, no doubt set her apart from her peers.
