Fantasy. Anxiety. Pabst Blue Ribbon. It's freshman year of college. Three 18-year-old girls head off to New England, cry saying goodbye to their moms, and fall madly and platonically in love with each other. Until a hate crime happens on campus--suddenly shedding light on their vast differences and how unprepared they are to handle them. Big-hearted and searingly funny, Let's Get Ready Together exposes the raw vulnerability of female friendships forged on the brink of adulthood.
