    1. In Spirally Out of the Shadow, Michelle Dennis Evans takes up Tabbie's side of the story from her debut novel Spirally Out of Control. Tabbie is Stephanie's best friend but only when Steph moves away does Tabbie realise she is living in her shadow. While "the ridiculously beautiful and almost perfect" Steph fails to cope with the move, Tabbie finds new strength and new interests;struggles with boys and dating; and learns what it means to be a good friend. Tabbie has her fair share of teen angst, [...]

    2. Tabbie has always done things because her best friend, Steph, led the charge. Steph wanted to be a dancer so Tabbie took lessons too. She and Steph were part of a quartet of girls - all friends - who are trying to negotiate the hormonal traps and rollercoaster emotions of their teen years. Along with a variety of manipulative predators all ready to take advantage of a single innocent misstep. A companion volume to Spiralling Out of Control, this story relates many of the same events from Tabbie' [...]

    3. I enjoyed this YA/coming of age novel about friendship on many levels. I enjoyed reading Australian English and trying to figure out what a doona was. (the author includes a glossary at the end for those of us unfamiliar with OZ terms) The main character is someone you can sympathize with, and if you have ever tried to help a friend who is making terrible choices, you can empathize with the main character. The writing is good, clear, concise, and believable. I got sucked into the story almost ag [...]

    4. What can I say I wrote it I love it! Tabbie is the best friend everyone needs. After writing Stephanie's story, I just had to write Tabbie's.

    5. Every parent's fears are realized in Evans's latest story in the Spiralling Trilogy. Teen gal pals Tabbie and Stephanie have been joined at the hip in friendship until Stephanie's family moves north. Stephanie is miserable and makes sure her friends know it. Tabbie misses her friend, and cooks up a plot to get Stephanie back down to the big city. Meanwhile, Tabbie's other friend Janet is also losing a battle with her own personal demons, and to top it off, once Stephanie does come to stay and go [...]

    6. It was fabulous to get Tabby's story this time. Michelle is a great advocate for teenage behavior. All her books are wonderful for teenagers.

    7. Wow! I wasn't very far into the story before I was reliving my middle/high-school years. Like the main character, Tabbie, I was part of a group of four that whittled away one by one until only I was left. As I read Tabbie's story, I was reminded of the pain and confusion of those mid-teen years. Not a child, but not quite an adult. Curious about life, yet taught to be cautious. Struggling to discover where one fits in the world while still maintaining some self-discipline. It's a difficult journ [...]
