Review: ttfn by Lauren Myracle

Told entirely in instant messages, this sequel to the hugely popular ttyl follows Maddie, Zoe, and Angela through the new flirtations, fixations, and frustrations of eleventh grade.

Angela has just found out that her family is moving to El Cerrito, California, and she seriously doesn't know how she'll survive without her best friends. Maddie makes some really bad moves with Clive, a pot-smoking hipster who wants to be "friends with benefits." And Zoe finds herself falling for Doug, the sweet poet who has had a crush on Angela forever-a crush that Angela has come to count on.

ttfn was definitely an interesting book. It follows best friends Angela, Zoe and Maddie. It is a sequel to ttyl, but I never read the first book and could follow the plot fine. I really did not think I would enjoy this book, so I was surprised to find myself enjoying it about halfway through. The entire book is written in instant messages, so it was sometimes hard to follow the IM lingo.

Just a bit of a warning: there are many bad words and mature subjects discussed in this book. I did think this was a fun book, but it was just not my thing. If you want to read a book written in a completely different way, this is the book for you.

Rating: 3/5
