The fourth book in the Internet girls series, ‘Yolo’ by Lauren Myracle is a modern tale of three BFF’s trying to cope with long distance relationships and the struggles of moving away from home. Could you cope with making new friends all over again and getting dumped by text?
It’s freshman year of college for the winsome threesome and *everything* is different. For one, the best friends are facing their first semester apart. Way, way apart. Across the country. And it’s not just the girls who are separated. Zoe’s worried that Doug wants to break up now that they’re at different schools and Maddie’s boyfriend Ian is back in Georgia. And Angela joins a sorority, which is SO not a Maddie thing to do. In the face of chance and diverging paths, Maddie’s got a plan to keep the friends close and it involved embracing the present, making memories and skydiving!
Using of-the-moment technology, Lauren brings her ground-breaking series into the brave new virtual world of texting and tweets.
