Rating: 4 Enchantments

THOSE GIRLS is the story of best friends Jinx Slater and Liberty Latiffe, who have been best friends practically forever, but whose friendship is threatened when new girl Stella Fox arrives on the scene. Will Liberty brush Jinx off to hang out with new friend Stella and leave their friendship behind, or can Jinx win back her best friend from the snobbish newcomer?

Jinx Slater is a unique character. She and her best friend Liberty have an amazing bond, but its one that will be threatened by the appearance of the new girl at Stagmount School for Girls, Stella Fox, and Jinx is completely afraid of losing her BFF Liberty. Add in a horrible ex-house mistress in Mrs. Gunn, a truly despicable character and one of the most creepiest ones I've ever read, who's had it in for both Jinx and Liberty for what seems like forever. It's easy to see why the girls are so thrilled to be living in a separate house from the woman!

At times, I thought the pace of the story moved a little slow, especially in the beginning, but the overall story more than made up for that with the arrival of the power hungry Stella. Pick up THOSE GIRLS and step inside the exclusive world of Stagmount School for Girls, it'll be a place you won't soon forget.

THOSE GIRLS is the first book in the series by Ms. Lawrence. You can visit her online and check out info on the upcoming second book at http://www.jinxslater.com/
