Nikki is ready to head back to Wellington, but she has one more trip to make before she heads to school. She is off to California to see Seth and is hoping to smooth over the rough spots in their relationship. One thing leads to another and the kids decide to go for it. They are going to try a long-distance relationship, exclusively. Nikki's escapade in California also introduces her to the newest student coming to Wellington, Delia Breton. <BR/><BR/>Delia and Nikki hit if off and the girls become best friends. Delia becomes part of the group, and she even starts dating Greg. Then there is Gabriel, who was often overlooked, but who lost his baby fat over the summer and is now the cutest boy on campus. Seth who? <BR/><BR/>These two girls are too hot to handle! Rumors start flying around about Delia and why she really left California. And we all know where rumors lead -- straight into drama! <BR/><BR/>I have to say that OFF CAMPUS redeemed the UPPER CLASS series for me. I was really disappointed after reading MISS EDUCATED, but I can officially say I am back on board. I actually can't wait to read the next one. I read the sneak peek at the end for CRASH TEST. Big mistake! I'll be highly anticipating its release! <BR/><BR/>OFF CAMPUS was unlike the first two books. The characters finally felt real to me. That of course may be because this is the third book, but even in the second one I found it hard to really differentiate the characters. Now, they all have their own distinct voices. <BR/><BR/>Delia's was a fresh voice among the existing cast. I really got her character. I can't say that I exactly related to her, but I could totally understand the why and how of who she was. Plot wise, this is definitely the most captivating of the three. I had to know what was going to happen, rather than just wanting to know. I was completely engrossed in the story and the characters. <BR/><BR/>I would absolutely recommend OFF CAMPUS. If you haven't read any of this series, be forewarned that there are mentions of drugs, sex, and alcohol, but the depictions aren't graphic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
