Those Girls

Title: Those Girls
Author: Lauren Saft

My Rating: 3/5
Recommend: Yes/No  

Some girls will always have your back, and some girls can't help but stab you in it.

Junior year, the suburbs of Philadelphia. Alex, Mollie and Veronica are those girls: they're the best of friends and the party girls of the school. But how well does everybody know them--and really, how well do they know one another? Alex is secretly in love with the boy next door and has joined a band--without telling anyone. Mollie suffers from a popular (and possibly sociopathic) boyfriend, as well as a serious mean streak. And Veronica just wants to be loved--literally, figuratively, physically....she's not particular. Will this be the year that bonds them forever....or tears them apart for good?

Lauren Saft masterfully conveys what goes on in the mind of a teenage girl, and her debut novel is raw, honest, hilarious, and thought-provoking, with a healthy dose of heart.

I received this free in an exchange for an honest review

I am not sure what to think of this book to be honest. Alex, Mollie and Veronica are best friends or more like appear to be but someone is jealous or envious of one another for some reason. If it is not that then either one of them are complaining about something and normally its against one another. Mollie starves herself because she has some of kind eating disorder and is jealous of how Veronica is always looking pefect and flirting with every guy she meets, she basically calls her 'slut' and 'whore' like what??? Alex is fed up with everything and joins a band without telling anyone, both Mollie and Veronica are shocked, they shrug it off first thinking she is not serious. Vernoica always feel abandoned after the summer holidays feeling like she always has prove herself all over again.

I really don't understand what each of these girls problems are, like why don't they just tell each other the truth? I feel like whatever they say its just a lie and their friendship is set on lies, lies, lies and more lies. Eventually when they do, it is a total chaos and more misunderstandings take place. Like seriously? I don't even want to think this is what is happening at schools currently. I suppose it was a good read in terms of morality and how one should treat their friends. Glad they could sort everything out in the end.
