Introducing: Lucky & Gizzy’s book club!

For my birthday, Gizzy got me a book, and she got herself a copy too, so we’d have better things to talk about than our loser ex-boyfriends or the computer games we’ve been hooked on.

The book is Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner:

The book’s description:

Addie Downs and Valerie Adler will be best friends forever. That’s what Addie believes after Valerie moves across the street when they’re both nine years old. But in the wake of betrayal during their teenage years, Val is swept into the popular crowd, while mousy, sullen Addie becomes her school’s scapegoat.

Flash-forward fifteen years. Valerie Adler has found a measure of fame and fortune working as the weathergirl at the local TV station. Addie Downs lives alone in her parents’ house in their small hometown of Pleasant Ridge, Illinois, caring for a troubled brother and trying to meet Prince Charming on the Internet. She’s just returned from Bad Date #6 when she opens her door to find her long-gone best friend standing there, a terrified look on her face and blood on the sleeve of her coat. “Something horrible has happened,” Val tells Addie, “and you’re the only one who can help.”

Best Friends Forever is a grand, hilarious, edge-of-your-seat adventure; a story about betrayal and loyalty, family history and small-town secrets. It’s about living through tragedy, finding love where you least expect it, and the ties that keep best friends together.

…So far, this book is really, really good!

I think we’ve already got book #2 picked out, but if you’ve got any ideas for us, send them our way!

    Sharpe Objects by Gillian Flynn or The Art of Racing in the Rain Garth Stein — both are very good and very different from each other…
