2013 book 270

Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando's Roomies
SUPER cute and charming book about the last summer before college, told by two girls who are assigned as roommates and start emailing each other. Each has various friend/family/boy drama going on, so there's plenty for them to bond over--though there are invariably misunderstandings and even some drama. Zarr is a reliably solid author for me; I've never read anything by Altebrando, but clearly need to remedy that. Both girls have authentic voices and realistic lives, and even if things wrap up maaaaybe a bit too neatly, it all kind of works. Like I said, very charming. A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in December.
