New Firsts (Claudia and Monica: Freshman Girls) by Diana G Gallagher

New First is a rather sweet book about the first week of high school. It follows two best friends who have to deal with a variety of issues, from crushes to mean girls.

Claudia and Monica are not prepared for what high school has in store for them. They both struggles with "finding" their niche, while attempting to navigate new aspects of their friendship.

The story is told in alternating points of views --- giving you an insight to what each character is going through and thinking. This makes the story more personal.

This is a rather simplistic read and I would recommend it for tweens and teens alike (there is some mention of sex). I would not recommend it for an older audience because it is strongly geared to a much younger clientele.

I think this new series is a perfect for tweens/teens as it give them a bit of a more realistic solution to real problems.

Grade: A
