5 out of 5

Some readers enjoy plot-driven novels, others prefer the scenic descriptives and still other readers desire specific genres of books. While I enjoy a variety of books, my favorite in literature is the character-based and character-driven stories. This story definitely fits that criterion.  Mia and Lorrie Ann are life-long friends; this story tells of their laughs, cries, successes and struggles. A lot of joys and catastrophes happen to the girls, however the story spans over fourteen years. This makes the story believable and enables the readers to really know Mia and Lorrie Ann. I love listening to this type of novel because by hearing “their” voice I feel as though my friends are right next to me. As an added bonus, the two narrators are the same two from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, another favorite audiobook.
