Through texts and messages, the mega-bestselling, beloved Internet Girls series followed the ups and downs of school for three very different, very close friends. Now 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. Maddie’s in California, Zoe’s in Ohio, and Angela’s back in Georgia. 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 on the other side of the country.

In the face of change and diverging paths, Maddie’s got a plan to keep the friends close, and it involves embracing the present, making memories, and . . . roller derby! Using of-the-moment technology, Lauren Myracle brings her groundbreaking series into the brave new virtual world of texting and tweets.

STARRED REVIEW
"This honest, nuanced, accessible, and credible account provides teen girls with an authentic and skillfully told description of college life. The story, which can stand independently from the rest of the Internet Girls series, offers readers realistic, engaging, and provocative perspectives on scary first semesters away from home and sage advice about drinking, partying, and shutting down socially, all without ever leaving the perfectly crafted text-message flow.
--Booklist, starred review

"Funny, deceptively smart and just in time for those going off to college."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Told in Internet-age style of text messages and tweets first seen in Myracle’s ttyl, the girls try to embrace the free-spirited yolo philosopy as they grow into their young adulthood."
— Jessica Lorentz Smith, Bend Senior High School, OR, School Library Journal
"...these memorable friends remain highly relatable as they share racy details about their lives, call each other out for bad behavior, and are there to help each other through [a] dark time.'"
