Publisher's Summary

Will the friendship between the "it" girls in school stand the test of time, or will lies, betrayal, heartache, and secrets tear them apart?

Monique, Bria, and Samariah are best friends from Milwaukee, going through some of everything together. Finishing up their senior year, they are the "it" girls in school, the ones other girls want to be like.

Samariah, however, doesn't want to share her shine with anyone. She'll do anything to get what she wants, even if that means sabotaging her best friends' relationships.

Bria speaks her mind and is as real as they come. She has been with David since freshman year of high school, and they are madly in love. Will that change when a baby is introduced into the picture?

Monique is too naive. She tries to see the best in everybody. She finally gets the man of her dreams, only to discover he has been harboring a secret. Will the love she has for him keep them together?

Juvenile trash!

If I could give zero stars I would! This book was awful! Just awful! From the story line to the characters it was pure nonsense! I RARELY buy books that don't have reviews and idk if this author is a novice or not but she needs to go back to the drawing board and try again. 11 hours of a bunch of adolescents and grown behind people all with the belief that sex makes the world go round.

The narrator actually wasn't bad with with what he had to work with but the character development was nonexistent and I'm still trying to figure out what this book was about exactly because it was all over the place. If you are a serious reader used to quality work please don't waste your time on this mess

Horrible and juvenile!!!!!!

If you’re an avid reader this is NOT the book for you. The narrator was fine but this book is so juvenile and poorly written it’s amazing it was even published. The author writes like a teenager and the storyline is so juvenile...a bunch of teenagers having sex and babies then the parents doing the same. It’s a ridiculous storyline that didn’t change just didn’t characters doing the same things having sex and babies then fighting over cheating men. Literally every character has this storyline including the parents. Absolutely NO substance. It was free and I’m still mad I can’t get those hours of my life back. I would give 0 stars if I could.

Too much

Too much back and forth over and over within the story line within the first five hours ! It made me tired and didn’t want to finish without skipping through the chapters.

Not the best

The narration was awful. The story line had A LOT of moving pieces that did not flow well together. Maybe it would be better with a cast instead of one reader.

A little too long but good.

I like the way it started off, we got a chance to meet all the girls. Had a lot of turns and twist. It's got a little repetitious, with Sam always doing devious things and getting away with it.
It's a lot to deal with then we had to get into the adults lifestyle. But overall it was a decent story.

Just Horrible

First of all, the cover HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BOOK! This book was about teenage foolishness! Monique lost 150 lbs in one summer before starting school...I stopped listening after that lol. Don’t waste your time!!

Entertaining

This book was entertaining. Sam was a bit tooooo much. The foregiveness peice, family, and support are all nice jewels in this book. I like this narrator. I would have given the story a higher score, but way too much description on sex and Sam's character.
