10 *relatable* things everyone has texted their BFF

If you're anything like us, you can't imagine life without your BFF. Whether you met in math class or music camp, she's your rock *and* the funniest, smartest and most beautiful person you know. 

We're betting you and your bestie have a lot in common with Cecily, Prianka and Gabrielle, the tight trio from the TBH series by Lisa Greenwald. In all four books in the series (which is written entirely in text, BTW), the girls' group chat stays buzzing with *millions* of life updates, intense emotions and declarations of how much they love one another—just like you and *your* crew. 

Keep reading to learn more about the books and see how you—
and your bestie can WIN the whole series.

Like Cece, Pri and Gabby, you and your BFFs have *definitely* sent one of these oh-so-relatable texts...

1. "OMG I have no idea what to wear today!!" ๐Ÿ‘—

You know *anyone* else would be annoyed by your 6 a.m. text, but for you, she'd drop everything to look at 30 pics of the same top.

2. "My mom will drive us there if your mom will pick us up." ๐ŸŽ‰


Obv, you'll be attached at the hip *all* weekend long. When you're constantly connected, you can start making plans well before Friday night.

3. "I know times are tough right now, but you're going to make it through." ๐Ÿ’“

You know your bestie better than anyone. So when she's going through a hard time, you've got the *perfect* emoji (and words of wisdom) ready.

4. "Need a study buddy ASAP!" ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜ฑ

When you're spending Sunday night stressing over a biology quiz, you know your personal tutor is just a frantic message away.

5. "Red alert. Bae is talking to me. What do I say?!?!" ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ†˜

Just try to maintain casual eye contact with your crush while try to remember what you texted your bestie. After all, *she's* the one you practiced this convo with!

6. "Just had a serious convo with my parents...can we FaceTime?" ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ’”

Life can get messy. Your bestie *always* gives the best advice—and helps you get perspective.

7. "This is the funniest! Knew only you would understand this." ๐Ÿ˜‚


The two of you spend so much time together you practically have your own language, which ofc includes your shared sense of humor.

8. "You are going to do AMAZING and I'm rooting for you no matter what." ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒŸ

Whether she's auditioning for the school play, trying out for the team or hoping to ace her next English essay, you're always there to be her personal cheerleader.

9. "I am the luckest person in the world because you're my BFF." ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‘ฏ

What can you say? She's the kindest and most incredible person in the entire universe—and you're definitely not biased.

10. "Thanks for always being there. I love you." โค๏ธ
