Best Friends Forever
Best Friends Forever: A Novel | Jennifer Weiner
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner comes a smart, witty fairy tale for grown-ups (Maureen Corrigan, NPR) about the friendships that last a lifetime. Addie Downs and Valerie Adler will be best friends forever. Thats what Addie believes after Valerie moves across the street when theyre both nine years old. But in the wake of betrayal during their teenage years, Val is swept into the popular crowd, while mousy, sullen Addie becomes her schools scapegoat. Flash-forward fifteen years. Valerie Adler has found a measure of fame and fortune working as the weathergirl at the local TV station. Addie Downs lives alone in her parents house in their small hometown of Pleasant Ridge, Illinois, caring for a troubled brother and trying to meet Prince Charming on the Internet. Shes just returned from Bad Date #6 when she opens her door to find her long-gone best friend standing there, a terrified look on her face and blood on the sleeve of her coat. Something horrible has happened, Val tells Addie, and youre the only one who can help. Best Friends Forever is a grand, hilarious, edge-of-your-seat adventure; a story about betrayal and loyalty, family history and small-town secrets. Its about living through tragedy, finding love where you least expect it, and the ties that keep best friends together forever.

I love Jennifer a Weiner. Her writing is so relatable and her characters are so interesting. This was s really interesting book about friendship and growing up and all of the things in between. It dealt with so many different things that we go through in life and with our friends. I really enjoyed this book!

Valerie and Addie were best friends until their teenage years when Val gives Addie the #coldshoulder ... But 15 years later Val needs Addie after something horrible happens 😩


vkois88 I think I read this one! I've found that a lot of hers are similar, so I have to read a few chapters to remember if I've already read it or not. Though if it's the one I'm thinking of, I enjoyed it 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88 I agree! I a lot of hers are very similar and they just run together in my memory because I read them so long ago!! 2y

Finished 7/26/17 - This is nothing spectacular about this read and it‘s certainly not a must-read but if you‘re looking for a quick beach book this would fit the bill. Giving it a pick because in its category of chick lit beach reads it is a good option.

I didn‘t participate in the #secretsantagoespostal swap this year, my wonderful friend @kylienoele and I decided to do our own swap. And OMG! She sent me this spectacular package stuffed full of extremely thoughtful, generous gifts! There were even toys and treats for my dogs, but those are already being enjoyed by them. 😉 There are even Harry Potter matches for lighting a butterbeer candle! 😍 I‘m so thankful for Litsy bringing us together! ❤️

GypsyKat I‘m so happy you like them!❤️ I put the images together as digital collages on the computer. For example, the Christmas gnome there was originally just a gnome sitting on a mushroom. I added the present, the words, the snow, the greenery, and the other mushrooms and put them all in a bookmark sized frame. Making digital collages has been a hobby of mine for a while, so it was really fun to make some personalized ones into bookmarks! 2y
tomes4gnomes I am obsessed with gnomes and forest-y stuff, so the three on the bottom have got my heart all aflutter! 2y

Sometimes books come along with a message we need at the moment we need it. Best Friends Forever is not a piece of literary greatness but it highlights the importance of friends, the need to be forgiving and on occasion the gratification of a bit of revenge 😝

Challenging myself to complete this book by Friday! Currently on page 68 of 358...sigh. I can do this! #readingrocks #amazinglikevinyl

I accidentally went from disc 5 to 9! I was a little confused but then just thought I wasn't paying close enough attention and missed something. Anyway, I'm glad I'm finally into the story. I bailed on the paper copy a few years ago; now in audio the reader's voice sounds too old for the protagonist. These women are in their 30s but the voice sounds like it's in its 60s. Pretty distracting.

Because when you go to @strandbookstore you can't ever just pick one
