Doc Freshman Dorm Should I ever try to pull off any kind of literary pretension, please feel free to remind me that as a thirty-two year old woman, I spent a summer obsessed with the Freshman Dorm series. One would hope it's the nostalgia that appeals, because it certainly isn't the writing or the soap operatic plots. The series follows three friends as they being their freshman year at U of S. Faith, the drama major, wants to have new adventures and meet new people, but is her high school sweetheart holding her back? KC, an ambitious finance major, wants to in to the most prestigous sorority on campus, but will they take her if they find out about her hippy parents? And what secret is party-girl Winnie hiding about her Eurotrip?It's not great literature, but it's fun, turn-off-your-brain-and-enjoy reading and it's making me feel young again..

. Popular Book Freshman Dorm Hooray! This is my very first book of the summer, the first check on Jessica's Summer Reading List. And what better than a completely dated, melodramatic, commercialized first novel of a forgotten 90's young adult book series? You're right...nothing is better!So I'm reading the "Freshman Dorm" series for three reasons:1) I found novels 1-11 (mysteriously, 6 was nowhere to be found) at the thrift store by my university and I bought them all for less than $5. The candy-colored book covers drew me in, what can I say?2) I literally just completed my first year of college yesterday and I want to read these books to see how my experience compares (some very easy to relate to, some not so much). 3) I've recently become interested in writing young adult and children's novels in the future and I read somewhere the other day that teen books, TV shows, and movies are created for the age group BELOW the group portrayed in the fiction. So I'm curious about content in books created for teen girls because I want to write feminist fiction for young women. I want to see what kind of role models girls have had in the last 25 or so years--because my role models were from fucking Gossip Girl and The Clique, and that sucked big time when I actually got to high school.So, these books are sort of a summer project slash summer guilty pleasure. They're very easy to read and the stories don't get too complicated. But I was pleasantly surprised- they portray diverse characters with unique personalities, and they cover all facets of the first-year college experience.There are three core characters- KC, Winnie, and Faith, who were best friends in high school. They have decided to embark on their next journey together- college! KC is studious and business-minded, always trying to get ahead, and she sets her sights immediately on the best sororities. Winnie is the extroverted wild child of the group who wants to make a splash without "messing up" again. And Faith is shy, sweet and kind, but she wants to break out of her shell in college, which is hard with her high school boyfriend Brooks with her at the same university. There are several secondary characters who will most likely play a larger role in the future books- Faith's awkward and sheltered roommate Lauren, Winnie's roommate Melissa, and Kimberly, a dancer from the performing arts dorm.The problems are pretty small with not much at stake- Winnie parties a little too hard and alienates her roommate with her messy habits. Faith tries to succeed in the theater department, but Brooks is holding her back. KC has to choose between staying loyal to Lauren or to the catty sorority sisters. But it is all pretty amusing, and it is nice to see the girls sticking together and helping each other rather than stabbing each other in the back.It is a fluffy start to a fluffy series, and I am looking forward to seeing what other kinds of wayward shenanigans these girls get into! Next up is "Freshman Lies"- ooh, scandalous!
