Bestselling author Jennifer Weiner’s dazzling new novel Best Friends Forever explores the impact of love, desire, and familial loss on a friendship between two young women, and how the choices they make will change their lives forever.
One of the nation’s most beloved and successful writers of women’s fiction, Jennifer Weiner has become a literary phenomenon with millions of copies of her books in print. Her latest work, Best Friends Forever will delight fans and critics alike, following the ups and downs of a long-time friendship between two young girls who grow up to be two very different women. Addie Downs and Valerie Adler were eight when they first met and decided to be best friends forever. But, in the wake of tragedy and betrayal during their teenage years, everything changed. Val went on to fame and fortune. Addie stayed behind in their small Midwestern town. Destiny, however, had more in store for these two. And when, twenty-five years later, Val shows up at Addie’s front door with blood on her coat and terror on her face, it is the beginning of a wild adventure for two women joined by love and history who find strength together that they could not find alone.

Jennifer Weiner is also the author of the novels Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, which was made into a major motion picture, Little Earthquakes, Goodnight Nobody, and Certain Girls, as well as the short story collection, The Guy Not Taken. A graduate of Princeton University, she lives in Philadelphia with her family.
Rick Holmes and Kate Baldwin deliver excellent performances in this touching audio. Police chief James Novick is called in to investigate the disappearance of bad-boy Dan Swansea from his high school reunion. At the same time, Val Adaler arrives on her old friend Addie's doorstep. There's a longstanding rift between the two of them, but now Val needs help. SHE knows what happened to Swansea, a former boyfriend who done her wrong--she ran him over. As voiced by Holmes, Novick comes across as sweet, funny, and a little sad. Baldwin is endearing as the mousy, overweight Addie and dramatic as her friend Val, who once betrayed her. The mending of their relationship, as well as the romance between Addie and Novick, is tenderly recounted by the two narrators. D.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
