I didn't realize this was a middle grade book until the protagonists' ages were introduced. Told from alternating points of view, we get a look at two quite different girls who are learning to be friends and dealing with their own issues.
I was actually really into the story, more than I'd been with other books lately, and finished it rather quickly. I liked both Lana and Carrie, and even though they had their disagreements (because Cassie could be quite a brat,) their friendship really comes through for them in the end.
These are the kinds of books I wish I would've read when I was a tween, but I usually stuck to older books and missed out it seems like!
