Fishbowl by Sarah Mlynowski

Back Cover: Allison can't wait for Jodine and Emma to move in to her apartment- until she realizes having roommates means living in a fishbowl: You are never alone. When one small, slightly accidental fire leads to one big repair bill, all efforts to avoid each other are finally abandoned: They've got to raise money... fast ("Insurance? You mean you have to pay for that?"). This means joining forces. Bonding? Well, at least they're talking to each other! Amazingly, they agree on a plan: shamelessly exploit their combined expertise on the male species for hard cash. Tactics: sell tickets to their swanky soirees and How to Pick up Women seminars... But their grand scheme sweeps awry any last shreds of privacy with startling consequences. Now that they're forced to take a long, hard look at themselves, Allie, Jodine and Emma's lives- and budding friendship- are about to change, in ways they never imagined... This was soooo much better than Milkrun I think. I loved this one! I like books that have different perspectives of people and they're together in the same story and how they each have their own turn to talk, cuz it makes it so realistic that you're getting to know all 3 of them personally. Then the parts with the random narrators that was funny and different, I liked it! I couldn't believe that Clint and Emma were doing that behind poor Allie's back! She's so sweet and cute sounding! hehe. Then sometimes Jodine's habits were really annoying and some of the stuff she thought I was like what the heck! She's crazy haha. Then Emma is like the sexy one I guess, but she just keeps going back to Nick. I guess she's the one other girls wanna be like and get advice from, kinda like Allie. And I can totally relate to Allie's fingerbiting problem cuz I do the same thing but with my skin, I know it's gross! I have to stop! If she can I can haha and she's not even real right? But hopefully the other books I got from her are this good even though they are kinda long!! I gotta keep the reading of a book a day to reach my goal and I so have to do it!
