L8R L8R Review
When I found out there was ANOTHER sequel for the ¿Talk to you Later¿ novel, I wanted to read it immediately. Angela, Maddie and Zoe ¿The Winsome Threesome¿ have been sticking together since the seventh grade, and they planned to keep it that way for their senior year. More gossip and virtual hugs arrive through the instant messages of these three best friends, and their confident that nothing will come between them, since they have fought through several battles in the past so greatly. However, senior year is a MUCH bigger step for the girls, which they start off to be unaware of. Angela, Maddie, and Zoe will have to learn that life won¿t really stay the same after high school, when your best friend lives 3,000 miles away instead of only 2 like she used to, and you all end up walking in different directions. It all starts out when goody-good girl Zoe is finally going to see her boyfriend Doug after his trip to ¿Sea the World¿ for six months, and heads out to the airport in Atlanta to pick him up. Since it¿s been half a year without seeing him, Zoe starts to spend time with Doug 24/7, and ignores her friends when they tell her that she¿s overdoing it, until Doug hurts her feelings at Prom when he admits the same thing. At the time, dramatic Angela goes out with Logan, a sweet guy that she really just isn¿t feeling, until he buys her a jeep. I found this to be one of the funniest parts in the novel. While Zoe and Maddie constantly nag Angela about how it¿s wrong to stay with Logan just for the gift he gave her, she says ¿LOVE CAN BLOOM! LOVE CAN GROW!¿ with Zoe¿s response as ¿ANGELA!!!¿ Although Angela has gotten the present she¿s always wanted, she struggles to continue her relationship with Logan, by pretending to love him when she really doesn¿t, but doesn¿t have the heart to tell him how she feels. Everything seems to be plain and simple for the blonde tomboy Maddie (but don¿t blondes have the most fun?) until Jana, aka the ¿J¿ word, an evil classmate of the girls tries to break up the friendship between Zoe and Angela by spreading rumors and putting false words into Zoe¿s mouth, that Angela starts to believe is true. Since Maddie has had the biggest experience with Jana out of all three of the girls, she plots to pull a prank that will make a backfire of humiliation for her. Only problem is that Jana will start to do pranks as well, leading both of them to take turns. Reading L8R G8R was just as exciting and interesting like the previous novels before it. Once again, the writing is formatted entirely in an ¿instant message¿ theme, where each of the protagonists have their own font style and color, that suits their personality. It¿s really fun to read the characters directly talking (actually typing) to one another, through their apple computers. The only downside is that your not actually there when a certain event or big climax arrives, and the characters will just summarize it for you. For example, the girls will discuss their plans for the Prom, and then in the next chapter they are just going over what happened when they went there. However, the summaries are pretty lengthy and can still put a nice image in your head to help you know what happened. Angela is the only character that uses the smiley faces (emoticons.) Since she is the drama queen, it makes more sense for her to use them because it brings out her character and shows how emotional she is. Something I found a little funny was when Angela used a smiley face with a pirate hat and eye patch on, while talking to Zoe about something serious. Zoe said ¿Angela, why did you just show a pirate?¿ her response ¿Um, because it was cute?¿ After reading one chapter, you really don¿t want to put the book down. It gets so addictive as you read each page and your dieng to know what will happen next.
