Best Friends Forever : A Novel, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Addie Downs and Valerie Adler will be best friends forever.

At least that's what nine-year-old Addie believes when Val moves into the house across the street.

But in the wake of betrayal during their teenage years, Val is swept into the popular crowd, while mousy, sullen Addie becomes her school's scapegoat.

Fifteen years on, Val has found a measure of fame and fortune as the local weathergirl.

Addie, meanwhile, lives alone in her parents' house, looking after her troubled brother and trying to meet Prince Charming on the internet.

She's just returned from Bad Date No. 6, when she hears a knock at her door. There, on the step, is her long-gone best friend, blood on the sleeve of her coat. 'Something terrible has happened,' Val tells Addie. 'Can you help me?'

Review by

Hmm What can I say? I loved reading some parts. Especially when she talked about the past when they were young. That was excellent but then the weird story about the guy. Why does she have to add a touch of Mystery? Back in the days I loved Jennifer Weiner's books so when her 4th book came out i did not hesitate to buy it. What a mistake. It turned out she had tried to write a mystery book and I hated it.(Talking about Goodbye Nobody) I did not give up on her and some books after that one were nice, not as good as her first 3 books though.<br/><br/>You can see it in this book too. She can be so good but when she adds a crime nd mystery it go's downhill. It all is just so unrealistic.The cops who start a big investigation after they find some blood and a belt. The way the cop acted, the way the 2 girls acted.<br/>Jennifer. Give up the Mystery!! Stick with what you are good at. <br/>I still give it 3 stars cause as i said some parts were really good.
