Fantastic! I have read all of the Fab Series and this is by far the best one in my opinion. This book will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. You will cry, laugh, swoon, cheer and throw things at the same time. The characters are well developed, very relatable; they draw you in, stay with you and embody what the meaning of true friendship is. If you are looking for a great contemporary series I highly recommend the Fab Five, you will not be disappointed. This book can be read as a stand-alone however, it is better to read them in order. Well done Mrs. Kristell and I look forward to the next one.
