Summer before college: Elizabeth and Lauren are notified that they will share a room at Berkley; it will start like this an email exchange – almost on daily base – that will get the two girls to know better the other one and to share issues and expectations.
Elizabeth has divorced parents and lives with her mother in New Jersey, while Lauren lives in San Francisco with her numerous family. Both will have to face the detachment from their families, friends and boyfriends.
The novel is nice, not particularly innovative or engaging; the themes are the most common ones of the YA genre, overall it is an entertaining reading but not more than this.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
