This is a very enjoyable and moving novel about a group of medical students. In the tradition of the TV series Scrubs of the same name, the characters are given a lot of depth. I was a big fan of the TV series Scrubs and picked up the book because of the same title, and I was not disappointed. In the same well written and composed fashion, yet with a totally different style, we witness personal problems, drama, the pressures of the medical system and the imoact they have on our heroines.
The setting is very appealing and fascinating, the plot and characterisation excellent and the novel, overall, a winner. Looking forward to the next in the series, which is out already.
Randy Hanson, charming playboy and son of a wealthy doctor, strives to reach one goal—graduating from medical school. Medical school is challenging enough without the added stress Randy is faced with in combatting constant badgering from one of his classmates, suffering through countless and unnecessary ‘pimping’ acts from higher level medical personnel, and coming to the aid of his best friend, Jim Ryan, as he recovers from personal turmoil. Randy’s life turns upside down and becomes even more complicated when he realizes he is developing deep emotional feelings towards a spunky collegiate sorority girl by the name of Jane Davine. Jane is facing her own demons with a domineering father and attempting to overcome the life-altering death of her mother.
Randy and his friends take on the stress of medical school together and lean on each other, bonding as professionals, growing and maturing into responsible adults, and becoming closer friends than they had ever been before. Will they all meet their goal and graduate together, or will the pressure become too much for them to handle?
