"Nelson does an EXCELLENT job of handling multiple characters. In fact, although Scrubs holds almost nothing in common with Gone With the Wind, Nelson is comparable to M. Mitchell in her ability to juggle several characters. Effortlessly, the reader is able to meet multiple distinct personalities. This is a wonderful effort for a first-time author." -J Monk, Goodreads review
"I was a big fan of the TV series Scrubs and picked up the book because of the title. Similar to the TV series, this book combines personal dramas and conflicts with the field of medical studies. There is an appeal in the world of Doctors, the medical profession and the impact of it on the individual. There are also many other side issues in this, and great romance. Quite a comprehensive read this is very enjoyable and a read of substance." -M. Flanders, Amazon Review
"This is a very enjoyable and moving novel about a group of medical students. In the tradition of the TV series Scrubs of the same name, the characters are given a lot of depth. I was a big fan of the TV series Scrubs and picked up the book because of the same title, and I was not disappointed. In the same well written and composed fashion, yet with a totally different style, we witness personal problems, drama, the pressures of the medical system and the impact they have on our hero/ heroines.
The setting is very appealing and fascinating, the plot and characterization excellent and the novel, overall, a winner. Looking forward to the next in the series, which is out already." -Christoph Fischer, Goodreads Review
"This book gives some insight about people going to med. school. I really liked that part and I even had a few tears along the way. I loved the ending..." -Amazon review
"One of the things I liked best about Scrubs is the descriptions and examinations on the personal lives of the main characters. There are problems with family; parents, siblings and in one case, children; problems with significant others, teenage angst, and problems with the pressures and workload involved [with medical school]. The main & supporting characters are given very believable issues to deal with throughout the course of the novel. Some people change for the better (and occasionally for the worse), and most grow into their chosen roles." - Andrew McVittie, Amazon Review

For all that Scrubs is about medical school, there isn't a great deal of medicine in it. Instead, the focus is more on the toll that the time and effort involved can take on the people and their relationships. Obviously, the main one is the relationship between Randy and Jane, which is followed from first meeting to marriage, although others are given some attention as well. The progression of Randy & Jane is generally believable, with one or two hiccups along the way, although perhaps it is a little too smooth sailing.
One of the things I liked best about Scrubs is the descriptions and examinations on the personal lives of the main characters. There are problems with family; parents, siblings and in one case, children; problems with significant others, teenage angst, and as mentioned above problems with the pressures and workload involved. Most of the main & supporting characters are given very believable issues to deal with throughout the course of the novel. The book covers a span of four years or so, and during that time we see some people drop out, some people change for the better (and occasionally for the worse), and most grow into their chosen roles.
For the most part, I enjoyed Scrubs and would certainly continue with the series, projected to be 4 books, in total. It is on the longer side, and maybe the older end of YA but never seems to drag or feel like too much. If I had to find fault, I would probably say the main character, who seems just a little too good to be true. But that minor quibble aside, it's a good involving read.
I'M OLDER, SO THAT EXPLAINS MY REASON. THIS BOOK GIVES SOME INCITE ABOUT PEOPLE GOING TO MED. SCHOOL.I REALLY LIKED THAT PART AND I EVEN HAD A FEW TEARS ALONG THE WAY.I LOVED THE ENDING AND LOOK FORWARD TO MORE BOOKS
BY THIS YOUNG LADY.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE UNDER 18.
