Smart Girls Get What They Want- Sarah Strohmeyer
Author: Sarah Strohmeyer
Source: Bought new (Kindle)
Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are best friends and total overachievers. Even if they aren't the most popular girls in school, they aren't too worried. They know their real lives will begin once they get to their Ivy League colleges. There will be ivy, and there will be cute guys in the libraries (hopefully with English accents)! But when an unexpected event shows them they're missing out on the full high school experience, it's time to come out of the honors lounge and into the spotlight. They make a pact: They will each take on their greatest challenge—and they will totally rock it.
These friends are determined to show the world that smart girls really can get what they want—but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for. . .
Gigi, Bea and Neerja are girls you know. At least in my high school we had girls like them, super smart girls who maybe you didn't talk to all the time but you knew they were around. I loved how this novel played out. It was realistic and fun and sad at times. I loved seeing high school through the eyes of Gigi.
The summary of this book makes it sounds fluffy and light but do not fall for it. This book has meat to it, some parts were a little fluffy but over all this book has a lot more to it. Every single character was given more depth, the "villains" had so many layers and we got to see a different side of these characters that was not completely obvious and made me understand them a lot better. Gigi and her friends may be the smart girls but they do not have high school figured out and when they start to join in they find out a lot of things they had no idea about.
I loved this book, I read it in a day because I could not put it down, I recommend this book to everyone, look past the summary and read it because it has a lot of depth and a great story that is not completely obvious at first.
