This is the premise behind Rachel Gold's “Just Girls”. “Just Girls” is a follow-up to the author's earlier “Being Emily”, but is not a sequel. (Readers of the second book will learn how the main characters of the first book can show up in the second without it truly being a sequel.) Ms. Gold provides us with “a (school) year in the life” of some students at fictitious Freytag University in Ohio. The pacing of the book feels more like a ride on a merry-go-round than a roller coaster, never taking us too high or too low, nor too fast nor too slow – much like life itself.
I found that the plot, while interesting, was secondary to the characters themselves. I found myself truly caring whether Jess, Ella, and their friends were enjoying their days or suffering through them. (Again, like life, they do some of both.)
Ms. Gold – you've written yourself another winner. I am looking forward to the sequel (which I understand is already underway …)
RATING: 5 stars.
[Spoiler] I was sad that it went all Kissing Jessica Stein on us and had Ella end up dating the straight boy. I guess it's cool that he has no problems with her being trans but me being a gay trans woman really was hoping for Ella and Tucker to be a thing.
