Because I was always the new kid, I didn't have the opportunity to build up an abundance of long-term friends, though I do have a few that hung in there with me, over time and distance. In College Life 101: Freshman Orientation, by J. B. Vample, a few of these girls knew each other from middle school, but they were like animals at each other's throats! From different backgrounds, each girl, and later guys, brought something different to this book's table, allowing for an ending that was satisfying to me. So let me tell you about College Life 101...
The story is centered around Sidra, Malajia, Alex, Emily and Chasity - girls of color, looking to make something of their lives by attending college. One is looking to escape her mother's over-powering grip, one just looking to get away. One who is always trying to take care of others, no matter how annoying and the other a know-it-all. Then there's that one who's more boy crazy than any other. They all have their backstories, but it's the stories they create while together that makes the book a hit.
At first, I wasn't sure how to take this book. It brought out a life I never truly understood, but saw all the time... on tv and in movies! Girlfriends who always called themselves the worst of names, dressed poorly or overly dressed, but wanted to be on top. I couldn't relate to any of them, and worried I wouldn't like the book, but I was happily mistaken. The more I read, the more I found their lives intertwine, sharing and helping, despite their cut-downs and jibes. I found I wanted to know more about them, especially Alex.
From boys, to nearly blowing up the science lab, these girls get to know one another. The form bonds that will eventually bring them across two more books by J. B. Vample. If you enjoy funny drama, insane attitudes and how complicated life can be when you're adulting, read College Life 101! I'm on to the next read!
