The frat parties start almost immediately. There are a number of occasions where they go to a party, and wake up sometime the next day, maybe in their own bed, and maybe in someone else's bed. They may, or may not, be alone in that bed. They also have no memory of how they got there.
Along the way, Brooke meets James. He is kind, very handsome, and treats her the right way. She was not looking for romance, so she tries to hold on to an opinion of him as a rich, conceited jerk. It doesn't last long. She falls for him very hard. He seems to also be falling for her. Life is good.
Around the middle of the semester, James express his feelings about being in a relationship, with anyone, at this point in his life. Suffice it to say that it does not coincide with Brooke's feelings on the matter (the word "marriage" has crossed her mind). An atom bomb has just exploded in her heart. She loudly breaks up with him, and goes into an emotional tailspin. Her schoolwork suffers, and her friends have to drag her out of bed.
In the second semester, James is in one of Brooke's classes. She is determined to stay broken-up with him, but that, also, does not last long. They are together as often as possible. She is very reluctant to tell Stella, Kate and Darci. Does it break some sort of "rule" to get back together with the person with whom you have broken up?\
Near the end of the school year, Brooke hears from another male student that James has been "playing the field" when he wasn't with Brooke. This sends her into another emotional tailspin. Is she nothing more than a name on his sexual conquest list? Can they clear the air, and maybe even reconcile, before separating for the summer?
This one is rather lighthearted and pretty good. Of course, Millennials and "Sex and The City" fans will love it. In any college "relationship," what one person considers just hooking up, the other person might take a lot more seriously. Yes, it is worth reading.
“Siding With Plato” was super-fun, super-quirky, and laugh-out-loud hilarious! It brought me back to my college days—though, I didn’t have this much fun in my days.
Brooke is amazingly well-developed and I connected to her immediately, not to mention her excitable little gaggle of friends.
James, on the other hand, took a little bit of warming up to. Eventually, he proved himself to be a worthy hero and by the end, I was sold.
I absolutely love Manning’s writing style; it was very easy to follow along and get sucked it. Grab this one if you want something light, fun and insanely entertaining!
It's one of those books that you look forward to reading, are sad to put down and are left with an weird, empty feeling when you finish it and don't know what to do with yourself! it's now making its way round my friends, I absolutely loved this book!
