Synopses & Reviews
Best friends Renée and Flo have been inseparable for years. But now, as high school graduation looms, the girls’ rock-solid friendship is beginning to show cracks. Flo has her heart set on going to university, with Renée right by her side, but all Renée wants is to stop going to school as soon as possible. To distract themselves from the inevitable and frightening future, Renée gets swept up in a romance with an older man, while Flo starts attending a church group. With such different paths and views on life, the girls start to worry that it isn’t just high school that’s ending—but also their friendship.
Told through alternating perspectives in a gritty, poignant, and hilarious voice, Goose will appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell, Louise Rennison, and Lauren Myracle.
"The pace is fast, the exploration of the redemptive powers of forgiveness and strong female friendship thorough...Hard to say who will love this most: the women who lived the 1990s or their teen daughters."
"This smart, touching, and often funny book will appeal to teens, especially those on the cusp of adulthood."
