The "Internet Girls" Series
The trilogy TTYL, TTFN and L8R, G8R by Lauren Myracle
This trilogy follows a group girls throughout their high school years, talking about many of the things that most average high school girls go through. Their stories are told day to day, about almost everything you could think of. Amongst these stories are what has been happening in their life, all of their kooky relationships with boys, the parties they have been to, or the drugs they have done. There are many twists and turns in the book, but the girls always seem to stick together.
My favorite quote from this book is "“I live in my own little world. But its ok, they know me here.” pg. 208 in L8R, G8R.
Why I Read This
I read this book for many reasons. This book is on the banned book list, which made me want to read it to feel like a rebel. It also has a funny and colorful cover with emojis, and it looks silly, which made me want to read it as a joke at first. Then after reading a few chapters, I began to see the plot and how the book was actually interesting. I have now read three of these books in the series, and I enjoy reading them as they are an overall fun book to read.
I would recommend this book to any one looking for a fun, easy read, that does not enjoy books a lot. If you get stuck a lot in a book or get lost in the story line, this is the book for you. It is easy to follow, and I promise it will keep your eyes glued until the last page.
Three thing I loved about these books..
Three things I loved about these books were the non stop action, all of the gossip and metaphors going on, and the real life situations they were in too. There were real life situations that some of us can relate to in the book, intended to help the adolescence age group to see what can happen in reality, and things they do to handle it. Also, there was always gossip and things going on, that made the book a lot more interesting. In these novels, there were not a lot of cliffhangers, and the book was always in a fast pace, which always kept my attention.
Since I read three of the books in this series, I read a total of 738 pages. There are 208 pages in TTYL, 256 pages in TTFN, and 247 pages in L8R, G8R.
Two things I didn't like about the book..
There weren't many things I didn't like about the book, but If I had to choose two, it would be how little interaction there was with their other friends and family, and how they never had a conversation for very long. The book and their conversations were constantly changing, which made it a little harder to follow.
One connection I made with the text was the things that happen and are said in and out of school, like drugs and parties, and all of the things kids talk about.
If I were to die tommorow..
This book would not be a good last read in my opinion. The book really does not have any good testimonies or things that will make you change your viewpoint on life. I would enjoy my last read as something that will make me think in a more positive way, and make me a better person. Something that will alter my mind to look at things more beautifully and to approach everything with a enthusiastic attitude.
This book has broadened my perspective about how girls think and interact at school, and with each other. They talk about a lot of gossip, and they show how much girls overthink. They will ask for each other's opinion on anything, and they always want to be admired. The author of this series did a very good job of displaying the way girl's act and communicate with each other, in all of the likely situations high school girls are in.
