Three women connected through an elite boarding school grow thro
Gossip is interesting enough but failed to draw me in. It was difficult to connect to the characters for a couple of reasons. First, the Lovie's storytelling is distant and unemotional; thus, I didn't feel anything either. Second, there is much focus on parties, clothing made by designers I've barely heard of, and summers in vacation homes. I just didn't connect with any of it. Halfway through the book the the characters were past middle-age and I it took me by surprise. For most of the book everything seemed to be moving without any real point. Then it ended in a dramatic way and I felt that things were left unresolved. It felt like the story finally got to an interesting point and then ended without much ado.
The writing style sets this one apart though. It's kind of weird in that Ms. Gutcheon follows each individual story/event from the beginning to its end, resulting in a a kind of jumping through time situation. For example, we are introduced to a character, told how they die, and any resulting consequences of the event. Then the next part of the book will carry on with that person alive and a part of it all. It's different and I liked it though it could be confusing at times.
Overall, a solid read though I failed to connect with both the story and the characters.

I had not intended to purchase this book but glad that I did. I had a little difficulty getting into it at first, but was glad I kept going to the end. I enjoyed it.

Wow.... i see many issues in this situation...
First of all, YOURE TWELVE! Thats a little young, dont you think? At twelve, even if you do get him, you wont even be able to anything as a couple other then share m&ms or something... Then you could loose him before you even get to an age where yor relationship can actually go somewhere! Second of all, whats wrong with being feminine? If you act like another guy and let him know you DONT care about yourself and what you look like then maybe he wont even see you as a posibility. Next, what do you mean he annoys you? Does he tease you because nobody wants a guy who degrades them! Lastly, you cant just break them up! Sabrina and Zach are there own people! Its better you aviod the drama and move on. You dont want to be the girl with no life and needs a guy to feel confidant. Dedicate yourself to a hobby and show them you dont need them! He either will like a confidant independant girl or wants a sluttygirl as a trophey. It could easily go eiher way!
