Angela, Zoe and Maddie are finally seniors and ready for the great year they deserve. After two years of fighting, experimentation and some hilarious stories, they are prepared to enjoy the fruits of seniority – even though being top dogs at school means thinking about college, sex and even the impending end of their inseparable trio.
I really don’t like reading books about high school graduation, they make me feel very nostalgic for my high school days and make me wonder how the hell has it already been (insert number of years since senior year here – in this case seven) since those days? Anyway, I digress. Angela, Zoe and Maddie have really changed a lot since the ttyl days. Maddie seems to be less ‘everyone must die,’ and more optimistic about the future, which includes hopefully going to California for college. Zoe, who was so pure, now has a serious boyfriend who she is seriously considering losing her virginity to. And Angela…well, she’s still just as crazy as always not much has changed, except for the fact that she now wants to take on Jana – the Queen Bitch who’s been bullying them since sophomore year – for all the things she’s done to her friends. Crazy. But through it all they still have their winsome threesome friendship, even if they’re not sure where they’re going to be next year.
I’m not sure if it was because I was reading this book and the next book in the Game of Thrones series, but this book seemed a lot less overdramatic than its two predecessors. The girls seemed to have chilled out and they really seemed to have gotten over their petty high school problems and moved on to the true problems of young adults – sex and what the hell are we going to do with our lives after high school? Been there, freaked about it, and paid the awesome tuition bills. Ha. I loved how the girls kept their heads though through all of it. There were any petty fights between the three like in the last two books, and even Angela’s dramatic reactions were pretty calm despite it all.
Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. I liked this book a lot more than the previous two. The girls were really mature, which I guess comes with the territory of high school graduation. Thankfully this book ended before they got too sappy about the end of high school. I’m now curious to see what college has in store for them.
