Overview

As freshman year at LU kicks off, Lora-Leigh, Jenna, and Roni are all equally thrilled to have found a home in the Zeta Zeta Tau sorority. Lora-Leigh still can't believe she's wearing a sorority pin and, what's more, that she and her new sisters have become so close so fast. Roni already loves her sorority, so when it comes time to elect a new member president, she can't keep herself from adding her name to the ballot. And Jenna can't keep herself from being in two places at once! The girl has a full load of classes, a demanding antisorority roommate, a marching band scholarship to uphold, and lots of sorority activities to attend. How's a girl supposed to appease everyone and everything—not to mention strike up a romance with a very hot fraternity boy—all the while keeping her diabetes hidden? Lora-Leigh and Roni are there for her, but initiation is on the horizon and Jenna must decide if she really trusts her new friends enough to share her secret.

I loved this book so much because its truly a hard look at what goes on during the first semester of a girl's life at college. I felt like I could see myself in so many of the characters having to deal with crazy schedules, maniacal professors and roomies that would just as soon as stab you than help you. But Jenna, Lora-Leigh, and Roni are three friends who are now sorority sisters and proving that they have what it takes to be friends for a lifetime. I found myself gasping out loud more than once as i read this book at all the things that were happening. I was so happy to see the girls dating and having fun with boys and really enjoying it. The one scene that left me bawling was the Big Sis/Little Sis reveal and just how touching it all was. Kate Harmon has started a wonderful series here and its perfect for a high school girl right before you go to university to read. Its a great look at what happens in college, what sorority rush is like and the unbridled excitement that sorority membership brings with it. I want to find the third book in the series so bad right now. I loved getting to experience initiation and all that lead up to it, but now I want to see what happens to all three of them and what mark they start putting on their sorority life.

Rush isn't officially over, but the three friends found their way into the perfect sorority house - together. Meanwhile, life doesn't stop, instead it gets even crazier. Jenna's dealing with a jealous roommate and struggling with the stress of having to juggle the sorority on top of band practice and classes. Lora-Leigh's flirting with a hot football player who may or may not like her back. Plus, her mom's giving her the cold shoulder because she's now a ZZT. Can she create the perfect purse to melt her mother's anger? Roni wishes that her family wasn't so cold. With her new sisters, she's ready to form her own family and she's willing to do almost anything to make that happen. The second book in the SORORITY 101 series deals with more realistic drama, creating an addicting and fun read.

I wrote a review for the first book in this series about how excited I was about the series. I wasn't disappointed in the second book. It was great to pick up the continuation of Roni, Lora-Leigh, and Jenna's sorority (and freshman year) adventures. There is their pledge ceremony, fraternity parties, meeting cute (and hot) guys, going to class, and dealing with their struggles. Roni has problems with her parents back in Boston, Lora-Leigh is in a tiff with her mother for not pledging her sorority, and Jenna is hiding her diabetes from all of her friends. I thought the most touching scenes in the book were when Jenna's sorority sisters discover her disease, yet accept her for who she is, when Lora-Leigh and her mom 'kiss and make up' and when Roni goes through the formal sorority initiation. That entire chapter was fascinating to me since I wasn't in a sorority. I felt like I was getting initiated myself. I will definitely let my 11 year old read this series.
