  • Taneika
    I received this book for free from Pan Macmillan Australia in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.When I first heard about this, I was so incredibly excited to get my hands on it as not only is it written by three incredible #LoveOzYA authors, but it tackles feminism, identity, bullying and friendship!Take Three Girls follows three girls (funnily enough) named Ady, Clem and Kate a...

    Reread 24/09/2017Take Three Girls, a definite keeper and a novel I will be recommending everyone. I spent around 2 hours reading from the story out loud to my friends today - my throat is a teensy bit sore but my heart is so full. Also, OLIVER. OLIVER. OLIVER.First June 2017I can't wait for September to arrive because even though I'm reading the uncorrected proof copy, and I can see what needs fixing up, it's amazing. It's everything I could have...

    Four years ago, on the now defunct podcast Ladies of YA, I interviewed Fiona Wood and she let slip that she, Cath Crowley, and Simmone Howell were working on a book together. I have been eagerly anticipated that book since that day. Finally receiving an ARC of Take Three Girls , a book coauthored by my three favourite authors, was a dream come true. To say I love this book would be an understatement because I love it with ALL my heart.Sixteen-ye...

    Trigger warnings: misogyny, slut shaming, fat shaming, homophobia, drug/alcohol addiction.I've been excited about this since I heard the authors reading an excerpt from it at the 2016 YA Showcase at the State Library in December of last year. So I may have squeed more than a little when I saw it for sale at the shop at the Melbourne Writers Festival over the weekend. And I read it pretty much straight away, because reasons. This follows the story...

    I first heard that Cath Crowley, Simmone Howell and Fiona Wood were writing a book together around two years ago. I was so excited - they are three of my favourite writers - and I marvelled that they were able to collaborate while working simultaneously on individual projects.The end result is a brilliant book. It would be well crafted if it was written by a single author, but the fact it has three creators makes it even more impressive. It reads...

    Take Three Girls is full of Feminism, female friendship, family, online bullying, wellness, misogyny, kissing, and highschool. Take Three Girls is a book that made my heart so happy whilst dealing with some real issues. I saw so much of my own highschool in this story and while it was enraging to see all the online bullying and slut shaming it’s all unfortunately just apart of highschool. It would be cool if everyone was nice and educated but ...

    A super fun, relatable, realistic portrayal of being a teenage girl and being in high school, and I loved it. Loved the friendship and feminism focus, and it was just overall a really enjoyable read.

  • Tara
    When I heard that these three amazing women were writing a book together I was so excited to read it, and now that I have I am feeling slightly saddened that I read it in two sittings and it is finished. Take Three Girls was fantastic and it is definitely one of my top reads of the year. I am all about characters and these three girls stormed their way into my heart, each in their own way. I can honestly say that I love them to bits, and their st...

    3.5 stars!I did enjoy this cute contemporary. The start was a bit painful and I couldn't stand Clem but she got better. Kate was by far my favourite and I would have been happy with a whole book about her but it was interesting having the different perspectives.
  • Trisha
    I am a huge fan of this book and its creators.

    Hurricane Irma Power Outage Read #1 I love all three of these authors so I was super excited for this and it delivered in that special Aussie YA way. Anyone know who wrote which character? I have some suspicions but my cell data lasts about 30 seconds a pop before going back out again and I am LAZY.

    I loved loved loved this book. Such an interesting idea of having three different authors taking on three different girls. It worked so well and it's just a beautiful piece of YA literature. Would totally recommend this to so many people. Also has such an awesome Melbourne vibe, and very authentically Australian.
  • Renee Baines
    I really enjoyed reading this Australian novel. With it's colourful cover, it drew me in to read to the end. Take three girls is a must read for those who in high school
  • Veronica
    Just lovely. A beautiful, fun, moving tribute to teenage girls and their friendships, from three of Australia's best YA authors.
  • Eugenia (Genie In A Book)
    *This review also appears on my blog Genie In A Book*Thank you to Pan Macmillan Australia for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewTake Three Girls provides an unflinchingly honest view into so many of the real issues facing teenage girls today. We've all heard about, or perhaps even experienced the pain and embarrassment which a slanderous post on social media can inflict. We see the everyday sexism and casual misogyny ...
  • Annie
    This is a fantastic collaboration by 3 amazing Aussie female authors. They did such a great job with this book!!! This story made me feel thankful that I'm not a 16 year old in today's world.. This book covered many issues teens face in today's world but one issue that resonated with me was the aspect of cyber bullying and social media trolling. When I was in high school, yes bullying existed in the school yard which was bad enough but that's whe...

    RATING: 4.5/5 stars (or maybe 4.75. I do not know!!)'Take Three Girls' is the book of the month for the YA Circle book club. I really enjoyed reading it. The whole book was cute and the characters were very lovable - I felt quite protective of them at times, and quiet proud of them during other parts. Kate's chapters were my favourites but I also did enjoy reading from both Clem and Ady's point of views. Even the side characters were great - espe...

    Thanks YA Circle for yet another interesting BOTM and getting me to read a contemporary I probably wouldn't have read otherwise. I actually did enjoy reading this one. I loved (most of) the characters, the plot and the overall message of friendship that the book boasted.I can't decide if Kate or Ady was my favourite of the three girls, but honestly my favourite character in the book overall was Ben - and he's barely in it! I thought the story did...
