usually drama and romance aren't my cup of tea, but I liked this one. not a lot of books feature the summer after high school graduation so that makes the book stand out to me. I did think that Elizabeth was a bit of a drama queen, but it was pretty cool that she was a landscaper.

A quick easy fun YA read about 2 girls who are going to be roommates at college and their experiences in the summer before they meet in person in their new dorm. Sweet, true to life and a good pick for older teen girls.

"In the summer before their first year of college, Jersey girl EB and California native Lauren are assigned to be roommates in the fall. What begins as a simple email introduction turns into a summer-long emotional roller coaster for both girls as they overcome their initial awkwardness, open up about their complicated families, and stumble through misunderstandings and personality clashes. Will their shaky online friendship survive once they're living together in a dorm room? You'll have to read this "authentic and drama filled" (Booklist) dual-perspective story to find out."

If you're looking for a very casual, easy read, this book is for you. The plot (two girls with totally opposite lives who conquer their differences and become friends) is incredibly predictable, but it moves at a quick, humorous pace, making it easy to read right through it in one or two sessions.
