Roomies

Roomies - Sara Zarr, Tara Altebrando

Elizabeth (EB) and Lauren are notified they will be roommates in the fall when they begin at Berkeley. They begin a tenuous email relationship during the summer to get to know each other and make plans for the fall. 

Told in alternating points of view, this story shares the beginning of a friendship of two girls, both trying to deal with moving on from their families and growing up. 

As they struggle with relationships with their friends and boys, they end up turning to one another for help. While there are misunderstandings along the way, they end up forming a stronger bond than they thought possible. 

This was such a sweet story about life, love, growing up and friendship. Too bad its not summer, this would have made a great beach read!
