The runaway bestseller now in paperback! An epistolary novel for the 21st century, this sharp, funny, and true-to-life breakout hit about friendship is told entirely in instant messages. And Internet-savvy teens have fallen in love with flirty Angela (SnowAngel), moody Maddie (mad maddie), and good girl Zoe (zoegirl) and their frank perceptions about a tumultuous tenth-grade semester. Now perfectly priced for its audience, the paperback is being released alongside Myracle's brand-new hardcover novel, Rhymes with Witches. AUTHOR BIO: In addition to ttyl , Lauren Myracle is the author of three other novels, including her latest, Rhymes with Witches . She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College and lives in Colorado.
I have to admit, it took me about 2 weeks to really get into the book. It's a good thing I was familiar with the text message "language", otherwise I would have been clueless about what was going on with Maddie, Zoe and Angela!
I think the book is worth a read. But I wish they had more chats together as a group instead of Maddie and Zoe or Zoe and Angela. But in all -- it was good.
Maddie tells her story or experience with the popular girl, Jana and what happened to her when she got drunk at a frat party and about teachers -- guy teachers especially.
Zoe tells the story of her on-going crushes and heartbreaks. Especially with Rob and him going for Tonnie instead.
And Angela -- the girl with the least amount of problems helps them through their problems.
I was surprised how mad Maddie was at Zoe and Angela that they didn't talk for like 2 weeks. I almost thought they would call off the Cumberland Island road trip. That would be soo cool to go on a road trip, maybe I should try it!
