It's Complicated follows four very different girls into their first moments of adulthood. I loved the blend of their unique personalities and struggles. The way the girls work together and are for each other despite their differences reminded me of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. Laura Smith does a wonderful job of balancing fun, girly moments with the serious issues that face young girls today. A great read for older teens and twenty somethings!
College is the birth of a new beginning. At least it should be. It's the time to be on your own, meet new people, and get on with the life you've always wanted. But how do you move on when you bring your past with you? How do you incorporate what has meant the most into your new beginning, or rather, try to forget something that doesn't belong at all? College Roomies, Kat, Hannah, Palmer and Claire are standing on the brink of their futures--an aspiring athlete, ballerina, a girl searching for love, and one trying to hold onto it. Author Laura L. Smith has done a remarkable job of allowing each girl to shine in her own light then bringing them together beneath a shadow of doubt--allowing them to see that together they are a million times stronger than alone.
