Girls Burn Brighter

51JDV0m-t4LGirls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao was fantastic up until the end. I really enjoyed the story of the friendship of Poornima and Savitha who are poor girls, living in India, and basically unmarry-able. The lengths that Poornima goes to find Savitha after she disappears are impressive and engrossing, but ultimately not believable. That element, as well as the ending, make me not recommend this one too highly, even though it has received rave reviews. However, other than the last 10 pages or so, it was a good one.
