it's completely heartbreaking and devestating. but at the same, it's witty and funny. just remember, the ends justify the means. it's also very well written. this book is constantly on loop in my mind, i have read it so many times (and not tired of it) that i can quote passages. there is so much depth to characters in this book, you could drown in it. it is however, a sophisticated read. that takes place in the 1970's. think you can handle it?

whats so great about the humor in this book is that i

This wasn't a great book, but coming after a bad book, its good book-ness was appreciated. It's about four girls, mainly from the point of view of one, Elizabeth, who go to college at an all girls school in the 70's. Partway through, something really bad happens, and it changes everything… blah blah… they follow them for a while after school till they're in mid 20s and 30.

I really loved this book...for the most part. I felt like Ayres introduced characters a little late in the story, but that the main characters were extremely relatable! It was as if I was experiencing the ups and downs that each character went through. Wonderful character development! I'll probably be reading this again!

Amazing book. I love the way the author uses words with more than two syllables. This books is set at Willard College in the 70's and is about a girl realizing just how much she likes other girls. You will find this one also hard to put down!

Finally a book that addresses bisexuality in a serious tone. The characters are fleshed out quite well and the plot moves and moves forward without delay and without rushing. The dialogue makes it fun and the insight into each of the characters' motives without being "told" about these motives makes it touching. Love it.
