Staff Reviews

Freshman year starts in 65 days. Two soon-to-be-roommates, one from New
Jersey, one from San Francisco, reach out to one another via email and
begin a correspondence that is by turns awkward, funny and poignant.
ROOMIES follows the epic summer of these two very different (but equally
disarming) girls as the days of summer tick down. They will say goodbye
to their old lives and create a friendship from scratch, one emailed
secret at a time.

— Jennifer


It's time to meet your new roomie.

When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an email to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of emails that alters the landscape of each girl's summer-and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room.

As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives-and each other ... even though they've never met.

National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr and acclaimed author Tara Altebrando join forces for a novel about growing up, leaving home, and getting that one fateful email that assigns your college roommate.
