The Darlings are forever follows three friends in their process of growing up and finding themselves. It is not the most original but I was caught up in their stories. The blend of interests, nationalities, and personalities really made the story. I can't wait to read more about the girls, because all of the plots were not wrapped up the way I would have wanted. But its in a good way, wanting more! Victoria's crush on Jack is sweet, and it is refreshing not to have a love at first sight. Jane's story deals with important issue that is not really talked about very much. Natalya's discovery of what true friends are about is really intriguing to watch, but I def wanted more about Collin. This is a cute contemp and I'd recommend it if you want a feel good book that will make you laugh some, and feel a lot.
