The Friends We Keep

The Short of It:
A story of friendship and forgiveness and it’s so well done. It will most definitely be on my list of faves at the end of the year.
The Rest of It:
Evvie, Topher, and Maggie met in college and instantly hit it off. Every strength and weakness is known, every fear, every insecurity. Nothing is a secret until one of them makes a grave mistake which threatens the friendship as they know it.
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I have been reading these great books lately about life, and love and friendship and they are just giving me life right now. I love to meet characters that grow. You know what I mean? They start one way, and grow with each page and that is how they are in The Friends We Keep. They mature and age and well, they just seem like people I could easily be friends with which makes me love them more.
Your college years. You will always remember them and in this book, their college years mean so much to them that they don’t know what to do when they don’t have that going for them. They seem a little lost and doubtful about their future adult selves and honestly, who hasn’t been there?
I’ve never read Jane Green before so I can’t compare this book to others she’s written but I CAN tell you that I want to read all her books now. All of them.
The Friends We Keep is a really great read and one that I did not want to end. Find a copy and read it!
