Is 4 the perfect number for that #girlsquad? Here we take a look at some of our fave fabulous foursomes from YA.

1. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares – Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget may be about to weather their first summer apart, but their friendship stays strong. Thanks to, in part, to a pair of magical jeans. #swag


2. ‘The Ladybirds’ series by Jenny McLachlan – Bea, Betty, Kat and Pearl a.k.a. ‘The Ladybirds’ go from strength to strength across these books. Funny, light but with plenty of heart. These girls rock it in their own individual ways.


3. ‘The Gemma Doyle Trilogy’ by Libba Bray – Gemma, Ann, Felicity and Pippa are pulled further and further into a dark and potentially dangerous mystical ‘realm’. They don’t always get along, but that’s life, kids.

4. The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ series by Sara Shepherd – Hannah, Spencer, Emily and Aria are a fierce fivesome until one goes missing and they become a ferocious foursome. Secrets, lies, suspense. #squad

5. ‘Kill the Boy Band’ by Goldy Moldavsky – Sloane, Erin, Apple and Isabel. These girls are out for blood. Boy blood. Not literally. But maybe. Accidents happen, don’t they? Their friendship is pushed to the very limits.

QUIZ: Are these lyrics from a boy band song or a line from a book?
