The True Meaning of Cleavage by Mariah Fredericks

True Meaning"Cool is Cool and Geek is Geek and at Eldridge the two definitely Do Not Mix"

Jess and Sari have been friends forever, bonding over the fact that they are the only two sane people at their school, Eldridge Alternative. They could not be more different but love each other anyway.

On the verge of their first year as high schoolers, Sari is excited, she thinks something is finally going to happen; Jess doesn't expect much out of freshman year, she just hopes to survive it and live to tell the tale. And both things end up happening though maybe not in the way the girls expected.

Something did happen to Sari: David Cole, hottest senior around. Sari not only likes him, she falls madly, psycho in love with him, and mayhem ensues there after, changing things forever. Jess, on the other hand, finds her self struggling to cope with it all.

The True Meaning of Cleavage is told from Jess point of view and her voice is fresh and honest, she is honest with herself even when it hurts. I liked that about her. I loved that she's captures the anguish and craziness that comes with being fourteen and changing, yet she's not whiny or over the top.

And most of all, this book is about how, when you're growing up, somethings you lose and it's better... and how somethings you keep.

Basically, Mariah Fredericks gets it.

Go read this book then share it with someone else. It is that good.
