If you're looking for a fun book about best friends and trying to survive life after college in a big city, then you're in for a treat! And it's set in New York! What's not to love? Brooklyn girls is about a young woman, Pia, who moves into a house with four friends and begins her adult life. Along the way, there are boys, job-hunting, parties, pranks, and just about everything that goes along with being in your early twenties in a big city. I immediately loved the five girls who share the house. Their bonds with each other are something I treasure with my own set of girls. They're different in so many ways and each one of them brings something to the table. I know this book is the beginning of a series and I am so excited to keep reading them and follow these women as they grow into their adult lives. Reading this book was like listening to a good friend. I felt like I knew Pia and I connected to her and all of her struggles. It shows how well Gemma Burgess knows what it's like to be young and finding your own way. I caught myself thinking plenty of times that these girls could easily fit into my own social group. The things that they say and do reminded me a lot of how my friends and I are. The funny anecdotes and situations were very relatable and I felt like I could have lived them and have already lived some of them.
The characters are written really well,
too. Burgess writes amazing characters. They're so likable and
interesting. I fell in love with all of them, independently and as a
whole. I can't wait for the series to continue so that I can get to
know all of them even more. Loved it!
