Editorial Reviews

First, a note for those not yet proficient in International Text Message: In instant messaging lingo, "L8r, g8r" means "Later, Gator." L8r, g8r the book continues Lauren Myracle's swift-epistles series. Still at the center of the IM action are best buds Angela, Zoe, and Maddie. Having survived three years of high school, the winsome threesome fully expect to rule the school, but they hadn't anticipated the evil buzz of queen bee Jana or the crazy hijinks at their senior prom. Fast-breaking fun.
Children's Literature - Melyssa Malinowski
Zoe, Angela, and Maddie are half way through their senior year. Everything is going well, until they have a run-in with their old nemesis Jana. She proceeds to terrorize the three friends, who are experiencing growing pains of their own, with boyfriend issues and the idea of parting ways for college. Maddie and Angela try taking matters into their own hands, to strike back at Jana, and are upset when Zoe, the shyest of the three, won't even fight back! They begin to mistrust each other, lose boyfriends, and things get worse when their pranks on Jana backfire. In the end, they have to band together to keep the winsome three intact and enjoy the rest if their senior year. Aimed at instant messaging teenaged girls, this book shows the warm bond of friends and the need to stick up for yourself (and your buds!), but to be smart about it. A fun and colorful culmination to the "ttyl" set.
School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up
The "Winsome Threesome" are back for their senior year, and boy, do they have a lot to talk about! This third and final installment about Maddie, Zoe, and Angela takes the girls in new directions, and, with Jana (the series' antagonist) back with a vengeance, they are struggling to retain their "bff" status. Rife with the daily drama of modern-day high school, the book's appeal is widespread. As before, the story is told through a series of instant-message and chat-room conversations and is written entirely in that "language," which also adds to its appeal. Suddenly, 200-plus pages don't seem like a lot, and reluctant readers gain a sense of achievement having breezed through what appears to be quite a lengthy novel. Be aware that as these teens mature, so does the book's content. Reading the first two titles helps with understanding references to past events but is not necessary to enjoy this one. Well written, thoughtful, and well developed, this novel is the perfect conclusion for this series.

This book is great. This is probably my least favorite out of the three though. The others were better. They were all pretty good though. It wouldn't recommend it for young readers though. It has some naughty language and they talk about some naughty stuff.

I love the TTYL Series. But this one out of all of them is the best. I could never stop laughing. It was hilarious!

This book is more for teens 14 and up, it deals with some teenage issues. Angela, Zoe, and Maddie are in their senior year of high school dealing with prom, spring break, graduation and being together for the last time.

I loved this book and the entire series! It was hilarious but it is inappropriate so I wouldn't recommend it for younger readers. Other than that it was a great book and I loved the way it was written. Lauren Myracle did an excellent job of making it seem realistic; the events are things that actually happen in highschool. Overall loved it!

this book is too much for girls under 15. This is the raunchiest of the series, with adult themes and 4-letter words throughout. The IM chat appeals to tweens, but read the first 30 pages BEFORE allowing your girls to read this book. This book could never be read on the TV or radio and I couldn't even begin to describe the content here.

The book L8R G8R is one of the best books I have ever read! I read all three books in the series, (TTYL and TTFN) but L8R G8R was the best one by far. I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. When something intense was about to happen, I was just glued to the book! This book really opened my eyes to the world of drama. I made a text-to-world connection, when I read about how Angela, Maddy, and Zoe are all best friends, and talk constantly. It made me think about me, and my friends, and how we are always stuck together, no matter what! Because I read TTYL and TTFN, I really enjoyed seeing how Maddy, Zoe, and Angela all had grown up, and the things they experience kind of remind me of myself. I mean, I'm certainly not a senior in high school, but just my school life in general, I can relate to theirs. I would recommend this book to anyone 13 or older, just because of some of the language, and content. But otherwise, it's a great book! ~S.R.V~
