Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner
I finished reading this book last night, which means I officially have nothing to read. (And now need to get to a bookstore STAT.) A basic plot summary for anyone who doesn't know about this book is that its about two girls Addie and Valerie. The were best friends growing up, but something happened in high school and they stopped being friends. They lost touch until one night Valerie shows up on Addie's doorstep with a secret needing her help.

The big secret Valerie has, well it isn't much of a secret in that you find it out within the first chapter. Instead as you read the book you start to discover what exactly happened between the two girls. How they became friends in the first place, and of course what happened to make them stop being friends.

It's been a while since I've read a Jennifer Weiner book, and while I have read most of hers, I do think Best Friends Forever might be one of my favorites. I do like the main character Addie a lot. Also, in general I enjoy reading high school-er books, and while most of the book took place with older characters there were a good amount of high school scenes. It was nice reading about high school in a more adult type book.

Besides the high school and current scenes, there are stories from a range of different times. They aren't always chronological, and sometime that can get confusing, but I do think the book flowed very very.

I do think this book was written in a way that there could be a sequel. Well, at least I want to know what happens to the characters in the future. I think it could be interesting to tell the book from Valerie's point of view (she's the other best friend. Jennifer Weiner I hope your listening to me about the sequel! Anyone else read this book yet?


P.S. The boy's working right now, but when he gets off we're going to the LSU football together! I can't wait, its actually going to be the first LSU football game we've gone to together. I can't wait! Geaux Tigers!


  1. I really liked this book!! If you like this, you might like Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. Sort of similar, about two best friends and their life story. It was so good! Have you read Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella yet? That was also really good... :)

  2. I really want to read this book. Have a great time at the game!

  3. sounds like another book to add to my list of things to read :)

  4. I haven't read this yet, but I am number 11 in the queue at my library for it! I'm looking forward to it :)

  5. Oh, I really want to read this book. I highly recommend The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet - if you haven't read it already, get it STAT. It is fantastic!

  6. I liked it too. I wasn't sure I would. Yeah I could see a sequel.
    I have Firefly Lane in my tbr pile as well.
