[NEW ARRIVALS] Best Friends Forever A Novel (Hardcover)


AUTHOR: Jennifer Weiner

GENRE: Literature & Fiction

Chick lit doyenne Weiner offers airtight proof that the genre thrives with this clever, sad and sweet turn on Thelma and Louise-style rage.

Juggling the politics of broken families, heartbreaking betrayal and shaky self-esteem, two girlhood pals - ugly duckling Addie and wounded beauty Valerie - reconnect after their high school reunion, where Valerie exacts revenge on smug former beau Dan Swansea.

But the payback gets more complicated when police chief Jordan Novick, nursing a broken heart and a crush-at-first-sight with Addie, is called in to investigate Dan’s disappearance. Along the way, Val and Addie stage what may be the funniest not-quite-heist ever pulled off as they evade the heat over the missing Dan.

The big payoff, of course, is that Addie and Valerie mend the misunderstanding that drove them apart as teens.
