Absolutely worth itBy Marcelino J UriosteI received and early copy of Lauren Saft's debut novel and honestly could not put it down. The writing is fantastic, the wit is sharp, situations comical, and yet, it is also an honest portrayal of the things girls go through today in High School. A harsh but very real commentary on what our youth are turning into. Miss Saft captures their voices, makes them into real people you
will love and hate, root for and against, with each decision they make.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Great readBy Liam NRead this book in 3 days ! It jumped right into the drama and was a fun fast read , I'm honestly sad it's over , you get into the heads of each character and truly form a bond and connection with them. I think this is a raw real book of high schoolers0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. A Walk Down Memory LaneBy Mila PanukSo much fun to read! You can relate to so much in this book- if it didn't happen to you, you definitely knew a girlfriend or, well, one of "those girls" from HS. This book is REAL, so read it if you are open to what it will show. As a late 20's lady who was looking to be sentimental and have a few laughs, this was a hit. Please write a sequel! Some girls will always have your back, and some girls can't help but stab you in it. Junior year, the suburbs of Philadelphia. Alex, Mollie and Veronica are those girls: They're the best of friends and the party girls of the school. But how well does everybody know them--and really, how well do they know one another? Alex is secretly in love with the boy next door and has joined a band--without telling anyone. Mollie suffers from a popular (and possibly sociopathic) boyfriend and a serious mean streak. And Veronica just wants to be loved--literally, figuratively, physically...she's not particular. Will this be the year that bonds them forever or tears them apart for good?In a debut novel that is raw, honest, hilarious, and thought-provoking, Lauren Saft masterfully conveys what goes on in the mind of a teenage girl and how often even the closest of friends walk the thin line between love and hate. From School Library JournalGr 10 UpAlexandra and Mollie have been friends for as long as they can remember. In middle school, they befriended the risqu but adorable Veronica. The three of them now attend a posh, private all-girls school. Once Mollie starts dating high school jock Sam, the dynamic of the trio changes. Alex spends more time with Drew, her platonic best friend and unrequited crush. Veronica becomes promiscuous and gets a reputation for it. Alex, the frizzy-haired rebel of the group, decides to join a band in order to pursue her musical interests and establish a separate identity for herself. As the new school year begins, Veronica throws a massive party at her often-empty house. She eventually begins an innocent flirtation with Drew, which her friends notice, and secretly hooks up with Sam on the sly as well. With two different love triangles developing, tensions mount as feelings between all invested parties threaten to break beyond repair. In this debut novel, Saft gives readers a look at the complicated relationships between high school girlfriends. The female characters she crafts are complex. Mollie is upset by Alex's decision to join a band without talking to her first, but has neglected her for years due to her tumultuous relationship with a boyfriend she doesn't even seem to like half the time. While the subject matter may seem innocuous and even vapid, the drama between the girls combined with their first-person perspectives proves to be a delightful, guilty read. VERDICT Fans of Cecily Von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" series will no doubt love this more nuanced story.Ryan P. Donovan, Southborough Public Library, MA Praise for Those Girls:"In this debut novel, Saft gives readers a look at the complicated relationships between high school girlfriends.
