Sequel to the New York Times best-seller ttyl
This sequel to the breakout bestseller, ttyl (a novel told entirely in instant messages), follows Maddie, Zoe, and Angela through their next year in high school, 11th grade. There's trouble and lots of IMs ahead for the Winsome Threesome.
Angela has just found out that her family is moving to El Cerrito, California, and she seriously doesn't know how she'll survive without her best friends. Maddie makes some really bad moves with Clive, a pot-smoking hipster who wants to be "friends with benefits." And Zoe finds herself falling for Doug, the sweet poet who has had a crush on Angela forever, a crush that Angela has come to count on.
Lauren Myracle has concocted another funny, touching look at the rocky road of real friendship--bumpy, nutty, and marshmallow-sweet.
Praise for ttyl

Grade 9-11–Best friends Angela, Maddie, and Zoe are back for their junior year in this sequel to ttyl (Abrams, 2004), also written entirely in text-message format. Zoe has recently started working with Angelas former crush, Doug, at Kidding Around, a daycare. Zoe is not sure how to tell her that she likes Doug, and just when she gets up the courage, Angela drops the bomb that her family is moving to California. Maddie is in love with Clive, who doesnt mind spending time with her and even occasionally making out, but hes in love with someone else. He is witty and charming and DEEP. He is also a pothead. In her efforts to keep him interested, Maddie begins smoking pot. As her friends put up protests, she gets defensive and tension ensues. Angela attempts to make new friends, but misses her old ones fiercely. She also misses having a romantic interest. As a result, on New Years Eve, she drunk dials Doug. He breaks the news that he is now with Zoe, which exacerbates her loneliness and feelings of isolation. Confrontations result but the three friends resolve their differences. This is definitive chick-lit, a comfortable read that explores sexuality, drugs, depression, and learning about oneself. Myracle does an excellent job of developing the characters and a plot that is easy to get into and fun to follow.–Emily Garrett, Naaman Forest High School, Garland, TX
