The house-hunting was another fun bit of nostalgia for me, as I moved off-campus for my senior year with a group of close friends. The girls in Giant Days had just as much of a hard time finding decent housing as my friends and I did. Each chapter seems to be a bit more cohesive as the story moves along, which I am appreciating, as one of my biggest critiques of this series so far has been the plot-line (and lack thereof). Esther’s character development happens hard in this volume, another move I appreciate. I feel like she hasn’t had much character growth up to this point, which begins to get old if she never changes.
This volume had a lot of romance going on for the whole group. I’m not sure how I feel about the shifting dynamics, but I’m looking forward to reading more, for sure!
