Madison MacDonald thinks the other shoe just dropped."- summary from Amazon

This is such a fun series and one that's hard to put down. I literally had to force myself to stop reading one night so I wasn't up all night finishing it. I love coming back to Madison and her friends and all the crazy things that happen in her life. This one is more prose than the previous two, though it's still got the fun status updates sprinkled throughout.

I was really wondering how Madison was going to get out of this because it seemed very dire and impossible, but she pulled it off and it was fantastic. I loved it. Finn has such a fun, breezy way of writing that is very compelling.

Overall, this is a really fun series and they're great summer reads. I really hope this isn't it for Madison and her friends. I want to keep reading about them!!

  1. I read the first two books in this series last summer and really enjoyed them, so I've been really looking forward to reading this one as well. I'm glad to hear it's good, especially how it's a hard book to put down! Great review! :)

  2. I just finished reading Top 8. I didn't realize this was a series!
