I could have written this little story about my own childhood. The author gets everything down pat about being an awkward, nerdy late bloomer. The continuous ebb and flow of the fragile relationships between young women could have been directly lifted from my life. I remember the silent crushes on boys & the petty rivalries it inspired among us girls. And how they would hardly ever last more than a day. Loyalty would shift from one girlfriend to the next and it all felt SO IMPORTANT at the time. We would over think every situation and really believed everything was about us.
Even those quiet, special moments that happen between girlfriends are represented beautifully. Those moments when you share secrets, doubts, insecurities, with no fear of judgement or scrutiny, and you just know that you two are best friends.

I loved this book, and recommend it for anybody who still remembers what it was like to be a teenager.
