Addie (Adelaide) Downs quiet, shy and overweight and Valerie Violet Adler freckled, skinny with protruding teeth have been best friends since the age of 9 when Valerie and her Mom moved from California to Pleasant Ridge, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago) across the street from her. Coming from two walks of life, they become inseparable spending all their free time together riding bikes, having sleepovers, and hanging out in school. During their teenage years as Val is swept in with the in crowd and as Addie tags along, an act of betrayal which leaves Addie as a scapegoat forever changes their friendship.
Fifteen years later a knock on the door brings Val back into Addie’s life. A class reunion and blood on the edge of Val’s sleeve draws Addie into another adventure with Val that takes the two of them on yet another wild madcap adventure as the two of them try to figure out just what happened that evening at the class reunion.
Best Friends Forever is a story about friendship, forgiveness and reunions. I found myself reminiscing about my own childhood, my own best friends, the ups and downs of growing up and growing apart and what happens when you return home to where things left off. I found it to be entertaining with some humorous moments and true take into what makes and how to be a best friend (BFF). If I had to rate this book I would be to give it a 6 out of 10.
If anyone has read this book I would be interested in what your thoughts were about it.
