Waiting On Wednesday: Roomies
[Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly linkup spotlighting upcoming book releases, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine]
I can not wait for this book this book! I just graduated college like a month ago(tear) so I can still remember when I was preparing for that first year of college. I am an only child, so I had already made up my mind that my room mate would be my new bestfriend/sister. After making a list of everything I needed and trying to get a hold of my room mate for MONTHS, I arrive at my dorm to find out that "semi-private" mean you don't share a room, just a suite-mate. I was a Little bombed but after the room mate horror stories relieved!!
Long story,short I like college based books since I can relate to them more!!!

It's time to meet your new roomie. When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl's summer -- and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room. As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives . . . and each other. Even though they've never met. National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr and acclaimed author Tara Altebrando join forces for a novel about growing up, leaving home, and getting that one fateful e-mail that assigns your college roommate
