I loved P.S. Longer Letter Later, so I was looking forward to this book. I was not disappointed. The book is well written and riveting; the reader cares about the two girls and their families. Some very challenging (new sibling) and difficult (alcoholic father) family situations are discussed with sensitivity and skill, as are the beginnings of interest in romance. I could really hear the voices of the two protagonists as they begin to confront the issues that face all young teenagers today.
I am a 30 year old and after reading this novel (in one night) I was taken right back in time to my teen years just as I was in the original book PS Longer Letter Later. A fellow younger reviewer felt some of the behavior and language of the characters especially TaraStarr did not ring true, but in my opinion that is not the case. There is always those few that go their own way and thats Tara as you see in her emails to Emily the much more conservative teen. Through these emails you see the girls discovering the pain and pleasure of growing up while trying to keep their friendship going despite the miles between them. Time and again they point out to each other how different they are but in the end despite having other "best friends" they always come back to each other. I also have to disagree with the recommended age on this book I am a Teen librarian and have PS in my Teen area where it goes out a bunch I just had the childrens area give me Snail Mail which I...
I didn't understand how much people miss when they move, until this book. Tara Starr and Elizabeth are two totally different girls dealing with a lot. From school problems, to friends and family they go through a lot, and without your best friend a walk away it can be hard. After a tough move the two friends have to keep up with each others good, bad and sad news by the computer.
Elizabeth lives with her mom and brother. There dad left them one day with no reason except that he no longer wanted to stay. Throughout the story she suffers the effects of having no dad. She's a plain, ordinary school girl working her was through. Elizabeth has a small group of friends, and of course a guy who she likes.
Tara on the other hand is a wild and crazy kid who makes friends easily. She lives in a small apartment with her mom. Although money can be an issue, she always finds some way to talk to Elizabeth, weather on the computer or phone.
