Title: Take Me There
Author: Susane Colasanti
Rhiannon is devastated after the breakup with her boyfriend and wants him back. Nicole’s ex is still pining for her, but she can’t help having a new crush. And then there is James, hopelessly in love with Rhiannon, who can’t see that their friendship can be so much more. Just when things couldn’t get more complicated, the school’s resident mean girl decides she is intent on ruining everyone’s life. James, Nicole, and Rhiannon are not going to let this slide, but will their desire to take down the mean girl bring these three friends exactly what they want?
Between Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti, you’ll have a lovely little library of teenage drama. Rhiannon has trouble letting go of a boy who broke up with her, while James tries to date girls while always having Rhiannon on his mind. Nicole on the other hand is breaking hearts as she tries to go after her new found crush, though as unattainable as he is, she still tries. This book is split into thirds, first the whole story is told in Rhiannon’s point of view, then James’ and then Nicole’s, allowing the reader to see each of their thoughts as events occur throughout the story. The very end of the story is told from Nicole’s point of view as the book is wrapped up though.
Though it wasn’t my favourite novel by Colasanti, it did show the strength of friendship and that was pretty cool ~ It wasn’t oozing with love, but it also wasn’t totally vacant of it… So yeah. Good book, just her best, in my opinion.
Susane Colasanti is a great writer, and is the author of many Young Adult novels. To see her other books, check her site out~!
