SnowAngel: hey, mads! 1st day of 10th grade down the tube - wh-hoo!"
-ttyl, by Lauren Myracle
This novel is written entirely in instant messaging format, and yes, Snow Angel's messages are all in blue font. And mads is short for another character, Maddie. I picked up the first two picks on this trilogy at a library book sale because I was curious and they are popular. Expecting not to enjoy it very much, I was pleasantly surprised to find it entertaining, and I'm about halfway through it now. We'll see if it can keep up in the second half.
