The characters of the Del Rio grow up in a big way in WHO YOU WIT’? When Lizzie decides to have all the girls join a year long virginity pact, it couldn’t be at a worse time. With Brian getting ready to go off to college in a few short months Mina’s already played her V-card, while Jacinta suddenly finds herself dealing with a serious issue--she just might be pregnant. While Lizzie’s hoping the pact will keep her from going too far with Todd, the pact might be just the thing that will tear the girls friendship apart.

Ms. Chase does a wonderful job with the storylines in WHO YOU WIT’? The issues of teen sex and pregnancy are handled really well, but don’t overpower the story with a negative vibe like some books tend to do. I loved how Lizzie had her cell phone timed to go off fifteen minutes into her make out session with Todd and how Jacinta handled her own situation. The scene near the end of the book with the girls waiting for the test results in Jacinta’s bathroom was one of my favorites in the whole series. While the girls friendship is tested more in this book than previously in the series, it’s nice to see a group of friends who stick so close together, no matter what the issues might be between them.
