Living with another person is never easy, but learning to live with a roommate is part of almost every girl’s college experience. When you receive your freshman year rooming assignment, you never know just what to expect: will your future roomie have an erratic sleep schedule? Will she borrow your clothes without asking permission? Will she hate your music? However, with all its concerns, living with someone new also brings the potential of a lifelong friendship. A roommate can transform from someone you simply share a space with to someone you can share yourself with.
In their new novel, Roomies, Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando join forces to tell a story about that time after high school when everything feels like it’s ending just as it’s beginning. When Elizabeth receives her freshman year roommate assignment at the beginning of summer, she sends an email to her new roommate, Lauren (who had requested a single), in San Francisco to coordinate the basics. Soon enough, the girls are emailing back and forth and sharing secrets even though they've never met in person. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can relate to are each other.
