I didn't like the cover and ordinarily I'd have overlooked this book because of it. There seemed to be no effort in producing it at all: a photo of two young people and a shot of urine on a brown background - ugh. The title was too small and in even smaller writing the name of the author. It doesn't look like a professional book. It looks like someone has thrown it together at the last minute--maybe they had a plane to catch?
The blurb sounds promising. I like the chatty style of the author as she explains the book in a concise way: Booze, sex, and good times. What more could you ask for from a memoir? Sounds fun, and the book is vindicated but normally I'd not have got this far.
Look inside started very slowly with introductions from Melanie Jo Moore and how she discovered another girl in her class called Melissa Moore, but the style was chatty and like the blurb promised, fun, and I must admit, even before I'd finished the sample read, I'd forgotten I was reading a non-fiction memoir.
In all, the book is about two girls with similar names. They meet at school, and hate one another. Then they become best friends. As adults they go on their separate journey through the trials of love, bad men, tears and happiness. Some things in the book aren't pretty, but the relationship between the two women stays strong. I love their bond, which is there through thick and thin. I'd describe this book as contemporary - it's a little too 'gritty' to be classed as chick lit in my opinion It's funny, shocking at times, with plenty of 'aw' moments.
The writing was strong, and the storyline, even though a little slow in places, managed to hold my wandering attention. I would recommend for those who like a bit of real life 'grit' in their stories.
