Yolo (The Internet Girls)
The three BFFs from Lauren Myracle’s best-selling series are back, but now they’ve moved on from their high school lives and are headed to college. Zoe, Angela and Maddie are starting their new lives apart, but they are determined to keep their friendship held together. As they embark upon their journeys, the girls realize that they need each other more than ever. While Zoe struggles to keep her love life intact from long distance, Angela starts to understand just how brutal Greek life can be, and Maddie begins to question whether moving across the country was the right decision.
The three other books in this series set my expectations high for YOLO. Unfortunately, though, YOLO, despite its amusing and entertaining plot, is simply ineffective. First of all, the texting dialect is so overly exaggerated that it becomes nauseating; abbreviated versions of “your” and “should” can be found in every conversation, and the constant asterisk use is redundant and unrealistic (*shakes head impatiently*). Furthermore, the friendship between the three girls felt forced in this book, and that is what primarily left me with a negative impression of the novel in spite of the enjoyable plot.
