This books starts slowly, but as it progresses you become increasingly more involved in the lives of the main "stars". You begin to empathize with their struggles and laugh as they attempt to outwit the nasty boy's house across the street. The girls grow as people as they grow together as friends. Not a book to read over and over, but compelling still and the scenes with the fraternity across the street are laugh-out-loud funny.

A slow start to a short book, but I am glad it finally picked up. I was nervous that this would be another poor review. Alas, the book picked up speed.

I am not a fan of her writing, she used some unecessary words - not obscene just too big for the cheeky chick lit plot the book had. I had a difficult time with her over using expressions and comparisons.

The characters were over the top, but definitely entertaining. It made me remember those college days being surrounded by everyone your own age and enjoying the excessive amounts of free time! I appreciated the misfits that live together and learn how to communicate to each other - the joys of living in dorms with complete strangers!!

The storyline was cute and quirky, but I am not sure I will be adding her to my favorite author list.
