Goodreads Synopsis: 
The higher you aim, the farther you fall….
It’s Violet’s junior year at the Westfield School. She thought she’d be focusing on getting straight As, editing the lit mag, and figuring out how to talk to boys without choking on her own saliva. Instead, she’s just trying to hold it together in the face of cutthroat academics, her crush’s new girlfriend, and the sense that things are going irreversibly wrong with her best friend, Katie.
When Katie starts making choices that Violet can’t even begin to fathom, Violet has no idea how to set things right between them. Westfield girls are trained for success—but how can Violet keep her junior year from being one huge, epic failure?

My Thoughts:
A well written novel that had me reflecting back to when I was sixteen. A witty writing style that had me laughing and remembering how much being sixteen was the worst and best time of my life. Leila is absolutely hilarious and I loved Mostly Good Girls. A read that makes you remember why your best friend is so important to you even when you want to kill them. I can’t praise this book enough. I loved Violet and Katie. Their relationship was great and realistic. I loved the characters I thought they were all realistic and they all added a great piece to the novel.
A good coming of age story that will leave you laughing and wanting more of Leila’s writing.
I Give this 4/5 Hearts!
