Maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t send a picture of my first read over to Sheila at Book Journey for her first book of the year event, because the book I planned to read (The Tournament by Matthew Reilly) turned out to be… well, not my first book of the year! I happened to pick up this little wonder, and then I was totally hooked about two chapters in.
It’s time to meet your new roomie.
When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl’s summer — and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room.
As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives . . . and each other. Even though they’ve never met.
Roomies was amazing, and I don’t say this lightly. I don’t have time right now, but I’ll definitely write up a review soon! I loved it!
