Those Girls Review



Those Girls by Lauren Saft
Expected Publication: June 9, 2015
Publisher: Poppy

       Some girls will always have your back, and some girls stab you in it.
       Junior year, the suburbs of Philadelphia. Alex, Mollie and Veronica are those girls: they're the best of friends and the party girls of the school. But how well does everybody know them-and really, how well do they know one another? Alex is secretly in love with the boy next door and has joined a band-without telling anyone. Mollie suffers from a popular boyfriend, as well as a serious mean streak. And Veronica just wants to be loved-literally, figuratively, physically, she's not particular. 


God damn... WTF did I read?
This book reminded me of Greek-the television series.
The girls in this book are high-schoolers, but they drink and party like a bunch of sorority/frat attendees.
I never thought people in suburban Philadelphia would smoke weed, drink under-age, slut shame, and all that wonderful shit.
These girls were terrible. Well, 2/3 were terrible. Alex wasn't as bad as her promiscuous friend Veronica and her equally promiscuous best friend Mollie.
Even though there was explicit content, the author really understood teens. Her writing emulated with me. I can picture other teens saying that stuff. It was relatable. Mollie's inner-dialogue was very entertaining and the girls were just so immature.
