The Darlings in Love is a beautifully spun story about teenage love and heartbreak. Told from the perspective of three best friends, the book follows the trials and errors of the very different teenage girls. The story speaks of universal truths like whether one should trust those they love, finding yourself, and learning to do what is right. The book is the right note between real life and sappy. And throughout it all the girls find out if it is better to be loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.
