I came into this novel without realizing that is was part of a series, but it still seemed to work. Granted, I may have missed some key references to past stories but I think that it was just grand. This is obviously a book for girls and more than that it is a book for girls that have close friends. I think it would be difficult for a girl who was a pariah to connect with this novel. It tells the story of three best friends who have been through think and thin. The girls lead typical lives going ...more

I really enjoyed this book a lot. "Holly's Story" is about three best friends who have been there for each other through thick and thin. Something tragic happens and it tests how close they really are.

This book would be great for anyone who has been through any type or tragedy, because they could relate to it and maybe learn from it.

This book was really good. There weren’t any boring parts at all. “Holly’s Story” is about three friends trying to overcome a tragedy which affected all of them. I would recommend this book to freshman and up because it’s a pretty easy book to understand.

I did not expect the tragedy that struck in this book. It caught me off guard and had the water works going full blow. I should have known better given my previous experiences with Lurlene McDaniel. Once again, her trilogy doesn't disappoint. A truly heartfelt story.

I've been a die hard fan of Lurlene McDaniel since the 4th grade, when My teacher started the habit of reading aloud to our class each day after recess. She read many books over the course of the year, and each and every book she read us was a smashing success. However, "Six Months to Live", by Lurlene McDaniel, touched me in a way that no book before had because it was my first experience with a book that managed to make me laugh AND cry.

It would not be the last book that had that effect. In f

This is the first Lurlene McDaniel book that has really disappointed me. As I understand it, this is the last book of the Angles In Pink series and there are too many loose ends at the end of this book for me to feel truly satisfied as I turn that last page. I would very much like to see more books for this series particularly because the groundwork is already laid. There is enough material for at least one more book one each character particularly Riana and Holly. And I would like McDaniel to g ...more

Out of all three Angels in Pink novels, Holly's Story is my favorite, because I can relate to this novel on a personal basis. I had a brother die at a time that seemed much too soon also, causing this story to really touch my heart.

Holly, Raina, and Kathleen have been through a lot over the past year in their lives, and have all grown up a lot in that time. The love and compassion that each of them gives to those around them is wonderful and touching. They always seem to pull through, no matter

Third in the trilogy, the Angels of Pink will have a busy but fun summer. Raina and kathleen have their plans set and with their boyfriends around before the last year at high school, Holly feels left out. But a tragedy strikes close to the house and now, the Angels need each other more than ever.

A beautiful, touching and moving story focusing on Holly's world takes us on a ride of intensity of emotions and feelings. McDanial couldn't have done a better job!

I expected less from Holly's book. Knowing her personality a whinny book about everything her parents didn't let her do was what I expected. But, it was completely the opposite. A terrible event happens, and suddenly she gains perspective. Although I expected it to be the most boring of the 3, it was actually where the plot developed and the most exciting one. I would really recommend this series.

i learned that holly self-esteem is slowly dropping and she feels as if she is invisible and the one boy that ever notices her "Shy Boy", she can never see him he has no pictures on his profile and she only dreams that he is next to her. I think she may get a little jelous at time when her bestfriends, Raina and Kathleen are with there boyfirends. She feels left out and lonely it only makes her self-conscious get more and more negative.

This Angels in Pink is Holly's Story. Its about three friends who return to their volunteer jobs at the hospital. Two of them have boyfriends now - Holly is left out when she it with the couples, and her e-mail pal has vanished on her. Then something really bad happens to holly's family. I was really sad, but i still think its a good book.

this final installment of the angels in pink trilogy truly gives you the most feels. it was such an emotional last book and it ended well. I loved this series as a whole and am glad it ended the way it did. there are some things that I would have liked to have been better, but overall it was great :)

Lurlene McDaniel's 'Angels in Pink' latest Holly's Story tells of three friends who return to their volunteer jobs at the hospital. Two of them have boyfriends now - Holly is left out when the couples emerge, and her e-mail pal has vanished on her. When tragedy strikes, her concerns seem petty in another McDaniel story of crisis and recovery.

Holly's story was very interesting. I think that the author had a good idea of what she wanted to write but made them happen to fast. For example, when Hunter dies it was so fast it didn't seem like it really happened. Then after Hunter died the book became very depressing. Since, almost every character felt bad about Holly since, her brother died. Overall it was an ok novel.
