A book about growing up,
This review is from: Just as Long as We're Together (Paperback)
This is a book about growing up. Three girls, Rachel, the genius, Alison, the actress' daughter and Stephanie, the ordinary girl with an absent father work through the difficulties of life and relationships.
I can't say too much about the story without spoiling it but Stephanie thinks her parents have a perfect relationship but in actual fact they are struggling and on the verge of breaking up. Alison just wants to get along with everyone and manages it by being herself. Later in the book she has a family challenge of her own to get through. Rachel struggles with being intelligent and her self assurance is no where near as confident as her school work.
This book is very slow to start but a few chapters in it becomes very readable and enjoyable. Most teenage girls would identify with one of these characters in some way or other.
Overall - worth a read.
