I thought this story may be geared to young people, teenagers. I'm a long way from being a teen and could remember that time like it was yesterday. I hope a third book continues Leeda, Birdie and Murphy's lives.

Sometimes an author gets it right and the reader is awed. Once in a while the author gets it perfect and the reader is able to live the story as they read, this is one of the rare books that is sheer perfection. I hated for this book to end. I hope there is a third book. My thanks to the author for a throughly enjoyable experience.

Jodi Lynn Anderson portrays the story of three teenagers living in the small town of Bridgewater, Georgia in her novel The Secrets of Peaches. As thrre girls finally reach their senior year, they have to face the trouble that college applications, love, and family bring. Through all this, they find they can count on their friendship to survive these difficulties. Murphy is the confident bad girl who can¿t wait to leave the small town that has been holding her back all her life. As she decides to go to NYU for college, she faces one problem¿her boyfriend Rex will not come with her to New York. She is torn between following her dreams of the big life and finding true love at home. Birdie, your typical home-schooled farm girl, is infatuated with her boyfriend Enrico who lives in Mexico. As she becomes confused on whether or not to take her relationship to the next level with Enrico, Birdie also finds that her nanny and friend of 17 years is becoming more and more estranged. What she thinks are the signs of a near retirement turn out to be something Birdie would have never expected. Leeda is the image of perfection¿the beautiful girl next door with the best grades and the nicest clothes. Her problem is that her mother neglects her which consequently makes Leeda a bit insecure and kind of a push over. As her mother disappoints her one more time, Leeda begins to stand up to anyone who dares get in her way. As she isolates herself from her friends and family, she has to decide what course in life she¿ll take, whether she¿ll choose to remain close to her friends or start her own life in California. Anderson does a great job portraying the ups and downs of friendship. The relationship they all have seems real and allows one to relate to their fights and their laughs. ¿Leeda felt fierce protectiveness when she thought of Murphy being alone in New York.¿ This shows the strong friendship that existed between them. The part that irritated me slightly was the fact that Murphy¿s character was too perfect. She didn¿t have the sort of ¿perfection¿ Leeda embodied, but more of an everything-goes-my-way perfection. True, she did live in a trailer park but she also ¿looked sexy without having to dress sexy.¿ She was always getting into trouble, always going out with guys, yet she still found the time to have the perfect GPA and the perfect SAT scores. ¿For all she knew, she would be valedictorian.¿ I find it hard to believe that one could manage to have the perfect academic records while having the crazy social life that she had. The small town life has never seemed as appealing as it did in this book. The scandals and traditions that only exist in small towns call to one¿s senses. One can feel the closeness and the separation that these characters have among one another. Jody Lynn Anderson makes one want to drive to Bridgewater, Georgia and pick one of the ripe peaches that first brought these girls together.

I loved Peaches, and was so excited when Jodi Lynn Anderson came out with the Secrets of Peaches. It tied up all of the loose ends for me, but now I want more. Believe me, if you read Peaches, you have to hear the follow up of Birdie, Murphy and Leeda! Read it!

The lives of the girls are all different, yet they find out they have more in common then they knew. It is an excellent story about how 3differnt girls can come together in the end, despite their difference, to become friends.

This was such an awesome book. Leeda, Birdie, and Murphy all go through tough times, and must make grueling decisions. I couldn't put the book down, I was reading this book whenever I could. I loved the true friendship quality, the real emotions and the romances that keep seeming to cause problems. Don't forget about the first book---Peaches---which was also fantastic!
