What is Lauren Saft reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Lauren Saft, author of Those Girls.

Her entry begins:
Right now, I’m reading Funny Girl by Nick Horby. I’m only about 20 pages in, but so far so good! I love Nick Hornby and every time I come back to his writing it’s like hanging out with an old friend who is totally different now than she was the last time you saw her.

About Those Girls, from the publisher:
Some girls will always have your back, and some girls can't help but stab you in it.

Junior year, the suburbs of Philadelphia. Alex, Mollie and Veronica are those girls: They're the best of friends and the party girls of the school. But how well does everybody know them-and really, how well do they know one another? Alex is secretly in love with the boy next door and has joined a band-without telling anyone. Mollie suffers from a popular (and possibly sociopathic) boyfriend and a serious mean streak. And Veronica just wants to be loved-literally, figuratively, physically...she's not particular. Will this be the year that bonds them forever or tears them apart for good?

In a debut novel that is raw, honest, hilarious, and thought-provoking, Lauren Saft masterfully conveys what goes on in the mind of a teenage girl and how often even the closest of friends walk the thin line between love and hate.
