my therapist: so, basically, you've been crying and screaming over one book...for an entire week?

me, obviously not okay: you look at me like i'm being dramatic???

i am, in fact, not being dramatic. this is tess sharpe's power, okay? i mean, what do you expect me to do when you give me a young adult thriller that has it all, including:

- a unique, intricately plotted story
- powerful messages, writing and ending
- strong female characters
- complicated backstories
- morally grey goodness
- amazing character dynamics
- friends who'd literally die for one another
- the best platonic relationship (m/f)
- the best romantic relationship (f/f)
- BICONS!!!!! this book better become bisexual culture

so?? what did you expect?? exactly, a lot of crying and screaming!

in all seriousness though, the girls i've been is a masterpiece and genuinely one of the best books i've ever read. words will never be able to capture my love for this novel.

but screaming about it on the internet might come close enough!!! so, well, READ IT!!!!

also, mom, if you're reading this: i didn't actually talk to my therapist about this. we both know that if i started talking about this book with her, we'd have to pay here more because i just wouldn't shut up.
