We all have a friend like Sunny the girl who can’t wait to fall in love, therefore, is always looking for love. There is nothing wrong with this outlook or this type of personality I have just never been this girl so I couldn’t relate to Sunny as much. I did love how Sunny’s desire to love and be loved showed in all her relationships. Sunny was a great friend and was the glue that held the girls together.
Claudia is definitely someone I was able to relate to in the fact that she put more time, effort and energy into things that produced results. She was more goal oriented and felt like her academics was a better way to spend her time. She knew guys were a dime a dozen and when the time came she could find someone. That is until she finds the person for her. I was much like Claudia until I found the one, then my whole thought processed changed and I became a crazy person I didn’t even recognize anymore. Claudia experiences the same thing when she meets her person.
Grace is the girl my heart just broke for. My heart truly goes out to young girls with a low self-esteem. Don’t get me wrong there was nothing wrong with Grace, but when a person gets these thoughts in their head you can’t change their opinion. A lot of people are their own worse critique and Grace was just that way. She had never really dated since she was unsure of herself and the only way she knew how to talk to guys was to become their friend. I love how Grace’s story unfolded, it was perfect for a girl like her.
The story is told through all of their POV so we are able to see their thoughts, insecurities and feelings as their lives unfold. Throughout the story I was able to relate to all the girls on some level. They are just typical girls experiencing one of the scariest times in their life: moving away from home. A lot of times books glamorize this experience and don’t get me wrong college was some of the best years of my life, but that initial start was scary. Leaving home is scary, making new friends is scary, and trusting yourself to make the right decisions is scary. I love how this book captured all of these experiences in a realistic way.
While I love seeing everyone’s POV and experiences I just think I would have preferred reading their individual stories, as opposed to reading them all at once. I felt like we didn’t get that much depth into their personal lives outside of their friendship since we only saw glimpses of these moments.
The underlining message of this story is that life happens, guys come and go, but friendship is forever. I really enjoyed this first installment and my only hope for next installment is to see more depth from each individual girl.

Three very different girls end up meeting at their college freshman orientation and hit it off. When they all realize they’ll be at the same dorm and they all three don’t dig the Greek thing, they decide to come up with their own little sisterhood of three. The GDI. They click immediately and as time goes on, they become more than just best friends. They become as close as sisters. This story follows their freshman year of college from start to finish.
Sunny is the most fun and easy going of the group. She’s got blonde hair, blue eyes, and a rather sunny disposition. She is the type of girl that always seems to find herself in a relationship. She’s on the look out for love. And she seems to find it right away at the beginning of the book. With more guys than one. She has the frat boy (gasp) that she likes a lot, but has a complicated situation. She has a few ex boys from her past that want her back. Sunny has to overcome her pre-perceived notions before she can find herself truly happy. Her story left me in a state of shock more than the others. I’m anxious to find out where it will go in the next book.
Claudia is that friend that is blunt. That doesn’t care what anyone thinks. She does what she wants, dresses how she wants and acts how she wants. She never becomes attached to guys because she’s never met one that ever made her feel someing. Claudia realizes she doesn’t know herself as well as she thought. Her story is more about discovering who she really is and learning to embrace and accept it. I think her story and character was my favorite of the three.
Grace is the shy girl. She doesn’t have a lot of experience with guys. She’s the friend. The girl who doesn’t get noticed much. Her issue is that she never puts herself out there. And when she starts to, she finds herself in a situation she never thought she’d be in. I loved her story as well. It had the best ending.
I really enjoyed how this story was told in alternating pov’s. Being in all three girls heads was a great experience. I love that they were all three so different, but really clicked as friends. Their love for each other, their personal journeys, personal growth and growth of their friendship was beautiful. This book made me want to re-live my college days. To call up an old friend just to chat. It’s a book that kept a smile on my face. The dynamic of these three opposites was fun to see.
If you’re looking for a fun, fresh and heartwarming tale of friendship and love, this is just the book for you.
Melissa Brown has always given me exactly the type of book I needed when I needed it. She never lets me down and I never hesitate to pick up the next book she releases.
In this story, Melissa perfectly captures the college experience of three very different girls that have become friends in their freshman year. You get a first-hand look into each of the three girl’s heads while the story switches between each of their point of views. You will feel all their emotions, while they are each are trying to find out who exactly they are in their journey to adulthood and you may just flash back to your college days while reading this story. As you may guess, this story ends at the end of their freshman year and I cannot wait to see where their Sophomore year is going to lead them.
Once again, Melissa’s writing is flawless, heartfelt, emotional and just fantastic. Keep writing Melissa! Make sure to pick this one up and let me know what you think.
