I expected a story of the perfect girl and the jealous one living in her shadow; like "Beaches". What I read was a raw and honest look at how friendship begins and changes from adolescence through early adulthood. Mia views Lori Ann as the good one, but over time experiencing many tragedies the two struggle to adapt to their current situations and maintain that strong childhood friendship bond. Most intriguing is the idea of how perception doesn't always match reality. Rebecca Lowman is an amazing narrator.
