TTYL by Lauren Myracle
Wow... I don't really know what to say about this book. It was different.
Angela (SnowAngel), Maddie (mad maddie), and Zoe (zoegirl)-through the roller coaster ride of tenth grade, with its boy temptation, donut runs, driving lessons, math torture, and queen bee encounters. The winsome threesome handles it all...then life suddenly jumps the tracks. A jerky boy sends peppy Angela into the dumps. Tough Maddie makes a mistake that has the whole school talking. And good girl Zoe ends up in over her head with a flirty teacher. Just when they need one another most, their friendship seems ready to fall apart.
This was the first (and only) book that I have read which is written purely through instant messages. It was very well written and contained some of the many wonderful elements, which make a young adult book spectacular. These elements include; drama, school, teenagers, and a "good-girl" turned bad.
So, I read this a year or two ago. And, if I remember correctly, it was one of the books that got me into reading.
Lauren Myracle did a fantastic job writing this book. It was truly original.
