STARRED REVIEW
"This honest, nuanced, accessible, and credible account provides teen girls with an authentic and skillfully told description of college life. The story, which can stand independently from the rest of the Internet Girls series, offers readers realistic, engaging, and provocative perspectives on scary first semesters away from home and sage advice about drinking, partying, and shutting down socially, all without ever leaving the perfectly crafted text-message flow.
--Booklist, starred review

"Funny, deceptively smart and just in time for those going off to college."

The girls from Myracle's Internet Girls series are starting college and an array of new adventures. Bubbly Angela is pledging a sorority at the University of Georgia, quiet Zoe is trying to keep long-distance love alive at Kenyon College in Ohio, and daring Maddie heads west to UC Santa Cruz, where she makes her longtime best friends promise to "try everything that comes our way, and we won't be afraid, because even tho we're spread out all over the country, we're still here to support each other." Myracle employs the same instant messaging formula of the earlier books, though there are some smart updates, including references to autocorrect and Instagram, and a topical issue as Angela struggles with whether Greek life is for her, especially after stopping a rape at a fraternity Halloween party. Not all the plot points are completely plausible, but these memorable friends remain highly relatable as they share racy details about their lives, call each other out for bad behavior, and are there to help each other "through dark time." Ages 13–up. Agent: Barry Goldblatt, Barry Goldblatt Literary. (Aug.) Grace and the Guiltless Erin Johnson Capstone/Switch Press, $16.95 (272p) ISBN 978-1-63079-001-1 Johnson debuts with an atmospheric Western, first in the Wanted series, starring vigilante Grace Milton. When the brutal Guiltless Gang, led by Elijah Hale, slaughters Grace's entire family in order to steal their silver-rich ranch, Grace narrowly escapes with her wild stallion, Bullet, and her father's gun. Since Hale has the crooked sheriff in his pocket, Grace must seek justice on her own. After a short time in the Arizona desert, she and Bullet are injured and dehydrated. An English boy, Joe, who was long ago adopted by the Ndeh (Apache) tribe, rescues her, teaching her to fight and survive. Nearly everyone Grace meets advises her to move on or turn to the law for help, but her stubbornness and determination drive her forward. Johnson delivers cinematic action and striking descriptions of the landscape typical of the genre, and a dusting of romance enriches Grace's life without becoming the main impetus driving her or the story. By the end, Grace's quest has just begun, and readers should be taken with how she has evolved into a gutsy, cutthroat heroine. Ages 14–up. (Aug.)
