L8r, g8r, Review

L8r, g8r by Lauren Myracle

Plot: This is the third book in a series following three friends through their high school career. This book takes place in the second half of the girls’ senior year, and chronicles their lives through texts and IMs. The girls chat about boyfriends, school, college applications, parents, and their ongoing confrontations with classmate Jana. There are frank discussions about sex, birth control, and drug/alcohol use, which is why this book (and the others in the series) are frequently challenged books. The beauty of this book is the “nothingness” that seems to happen – it’s just a bunch of friends talking about their lives. But the reader can appreciate how interesting and important these every day events can be. I was reminded of high school with my friends, when a good bit of gossip could stop the world in its tracks, and a taking a relationship to a new level was the most important thing to happen – ever.

Would you recommend this book? Yes, but for older teens, since it had a lot of mature themes.

4 stars
