Melissa Brown is an author I completely adore. Sorority of Three: Freshman 101 is a book about self discovery, love, and most of all, friendship.

Three very different girls end up meeting at their college freshman orientation and hit it off. When they all realize they’ll be at the same dorm and they all three don’t dig the Greek thing, they decide to come up with their own little sisterhood of three. The GDI (God Damn Independent). They click immediately and as time goes on, they become more than just best friends. They become as close as sisters. This story follows their freshman year of college from start to finish.

Sunny is the most fun and easy going of the group. She’s got blonde hair, blue eyes, and a rather sunny disposition. She is the type of girl that always seems to find herself in a relationship. She’s on the look out for love. And she seems to find it right away at the beginning of the book. With more guys than one. She has the frat boy (gasp) that she likes a lot, but has a complicated situation. She has a few ex boys from her past that want her back. Sunny has to overcome her pre-perceived notions before she can find herself truly happy. Her story left me in a state of shock more than the others. I’m anxious to find out where it will go in the next book.

Claudia is that friend that is blunt. That doesn’t care what anyone thinks. She does what she wants, dresses how she wants and acts how she wants. She never becomes attached to guys because she’s never met one that ever made her feel someing. Claudia realizes she doesn’t know herself as well as she thought. Her story is more about discovering who she really is and learning to embrace and accept it. I think her story and character was my favorite of the three.

Grace is the shy girl. She doesn’t have a lot of experience with guys. She’s the friend. The girl who doesn’t get noticed much. Her issue is that she never puts herself out there. And when she starts to, she finds herself in a situation she never thought she’d be in. I loved her story as well. It had the best ending.

I really enjoyed how this story was told in alternating pov’s. Being in all three girls heads was a great experience. I love that they were all three so different, but really clicked as friends. Their love for each other, their personal journeys, personal growth and growth of their friendship was beautiful. This book made me want to re-live my college days. To call up an old friend just to chat. It’s a book that kept a smile on my face. The dynamic of these three opposites was fun to see.

If you’re looking for a fun, fresh and heartwarming tale of friendship and love, this is just the book for you !

And you thought the hardest part of freshman year was scheduling...

Sunny McCormick is in love with love. She's cute, romantic and convinced her Prince Charming is out there somewhere.

Grace McCarrion has never been in love. She's shy, reserved and her own worst critic.

Claudia Mansour isn't sure she believes in love. She's confident, beautiful and hard to impress.

They've decided to go against the grain and, rather than pledge the Greek system at the University of Illinois, create an unofficial sorority of their own.

This is their story. The ups and downs, the trials and tribulations, the romance and heartbreak.

Welcome to freshman year.

Melissa Brown was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. She attended the University of Illinois and is the mother of two fantastic kids.

She speaks fluent movie quotes from the 1980s (John Hughes = genius), reads celebrity gossip magazines and never misses an episode of Scandal. She enjoys writing contemporary romance, romantic suspense and young adult novels.
