Sequel to P.S. Longer letter later ( )

This book is a great continuation to P.S Longer Letter Later. The reader gets to continue on the story of the friendship between two young girls. There are struggles and different situations that come up. This next novel takes place via email rather than mail.

Review by: Erin

Elizabeth and Tara Starr are best friends untill Tara has to move to Ohio. Snail Mail No More is the sequal to P.S. Longer Letter Later. They both get a computer and wrtie more often. Tara loves it she is always in with the latest fassions and everything. And Elizabeth is a little more old fashioned she prefers snail mail. Through there emails and differences they cotinue to be friends. Good book but slightly pradictable.

This book is amazing. Its really good for mature middle school girls and maybe some high schoolers. You have to read P.S Longer Letter Later though cause it won't be the same. You should definetly read this book. The only turnoff is that its written in email unlike P.S longer letter later. I like the letters better. Overall its a really really really great book . Thumbs up to Paula Danziger, and Ann Martin. The book is so amazing. WOW WOW WOW Oh now im on page 192 Omg i cant believe this just happened Oh i like this part okay im finished reading it. It was great. Anyways like I said you should definetly read it if you read P.S Longer Letter Later.

Do you have a best friend who never leaves your side? Would you do anything for each other? This is the relationship that Elizabeth and Tara have. Will everything suddenly change when one of them move away? Will they still be BFFS?

Elizabeth and Tara are best friends, and do everything together. When Tara moves away, Elizabeth's life will never be the same. When the pair figure out that sending letters through the mail takes too long, and that the messages they were receiving weren’t current. Elizabeth comes up with the idea to e-mail, but Tara doesn’t have a computer. When Tara finally gets one of her neighbors’ old computers, everything changes. Now they are more involved in the others life. Unfortunately, Elizabeth's father is a drunk, and has not seen Elizabeth, her sister or her mother in months. When a tragic accident occurs, Tara is immediately there to comfort her.

Snail Mail no more is a story of friendship, which everyone can relate to. This book had rich vocabulary, and real-life situations. Unfortunately, I found the format odd. Since the whole story was told through the girl’s letters, it was confusing. It was hard to follow, and left me questioning the authors' choice. This format threw off my reading, and was a bit annoying.

Even though the format was confusing, I still rated it 3.5 stars, for its strong message, “If you have a great friend, they will always come back, and still be involved in your life." I would recommend this book to any age, but mostly for girls. This was a good quick read, but not a reliable book. ( )

Two authors, two characters (one each) (duh), writing back and forth but this time they're not sending letters, they're E-MAILING! Omg how high-tech! Eh, it was kind of gimmicky but basically just any other penpal type of book when you get down to things. And not really one of the best. ( )
