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.
Praise for yolo
"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.

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

OMG BEST BOOK
I love this book so much! THE SERIES WAS AMAZEING! The quizzes are cool, and I wish Lauren Myracle would continue this series cuz i luv it and sorta feel like Zoe right now without Doug cuz i no the series is over :(
Sooo, i loved it so incredibly much that i told my group of friends about it(we have three people in it- hannah is like Zoe-Claire is like Angela- and I am like Maddie) and they love the books too!!! PLEASE WRITE ANOTHER BOOK!
Horrible and disappointing
I grew up reading these books and as a teen during the AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) days, these books were good as gold for me in how they reflected my then current childhood. However, I got excited, probably more than I should have at the idea of a college age ending now that I am in college myself. Sadly though, the book had a good start and subtext but the ending was very rough, unfinished and almost hurried so much to the point that the author just seems to have created the sloppiest and "eh good enough" style of ending that made the book devastatingly decline overall. It was great to see the girls face real college problems but the final climax with Maddie ended very abruptly with us having no proof whether she made it, how or if she got passed her depression which is a serious problem among college students that should have been addressed less delicately in this book.
