TTYL - Lauren Myracle

Gosh, the "ttyl" series has to be one of my favorite series of books. Some people don't like it, they say its too confusing with trying to remember which girl is which but I seriously just think they're giving excuses to not read it. Its like just give the book a chance, if you'll read it for about thirty pages, you'll be able to remember them. Anyways, I'll get off this crazy rant and do a review on TTYL. Tomorrow I will do TTFN, and then sometime over the weekend "L8r, G8r" (i will be gone on the weekend, and I haven't read all the way through it. lol)

TTYL (Talk To Ya Later)
Overview: (from barnes and noble)

An epistolary novel for the 21st century, this sharp, funny, and true-to-life breakout hit about friendship is told entirely in instant messages. And Internet-savvy teens have fallen in love with flirty Angela (SnowAngel), moody Maddie (mad maddie), and good girl Zoe (zoegirl) and their frank perceptions about a tumultuous tenth-grade semester. Now perfectly priced for its audience, the paperback is being released alongside Myracle's brand-new hardcover novel, Rhymes with Witches.

I don't think the the overview from B&N is very good.....

My Opinion:
Wow, This book was amazing, but I don't think it would've been nearly as amazing if it hadn't been in IM form. The IM form, and all the fun words such as "diesel" were refreshing and nice. It was also good that the book was realistic, and it was about things that actual girls think about and deal with everywhere no matter who you are. I think the IM made it easier for me to read. It was more fun.

Zoe - is your average good girl, who ends up getting way in over her head with a flirtatious teacher.

Maddie - is the sarcastic, fun-loving one. Shes awesome. During the book though she gets involved with a vicious chicka and something very bad happens.

Angela- is the energetic, falls in love way too fast one. She loves things like boys and shopping. In ttyl, she deals with heartbreak. Poor Angela. =(

My favorite character is Zoe, and its because I relate to her the most. She gets good grades, is a goody-two-shoes, and her mom is really hard on her...
I suggest this book for girls 12 and up!!!

It said for ages 13+ on the back, and it's on the top most challenged books list. Why do you think it's for ages 12+?

I'm not challenging you, I agree with you. I just wonder why.
