Best Friends Forever

Best Friends ForeverBest Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was a bit uncertain how I would like this book, most of the reviews were bad and I have liked JW's other books. This wasn't an amazing book, or even emotionally deep, it was an entertaining read. This book was a great escape, easy to fall into, with wacky characters which made for some great humor. I ranked this book high even though the plot didn't pan out and the romance was flimsy at best, I really enjoyed the writing and was thoroughly entertained.

Synopsis:  Following the ups and downs of a long-time friendship between two young girls who grow up to be two very different women: Addie Downs and Valerie Adler were eight when they first met and decided to be best friends forever. But, in the wake of tragedy and betrayal during their teenage years, everything changed. Val went on to fame and fortune. Addie stayed behind in their small Midwestern town. Destiny, however, had more in store for these two. And when, twenty-five years later, Val shows up at Addie’s front door with blood on her coat and terror on her face, it is the beginning of a wild adventure for two women joined by love and history who find strength together that they could not find alone.
