Best Friends... Forever? by Krysten Lindsay Hager
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Best Friends... Forever is a great and very cute contemporary romance.
Summary from Goodreads:
Landry Albright hopes the new year will start off in an amazing way—instead she has to deal with more frenemy issues, boy drama, and having most of her besties make the cheerleading squad without her. Suddenly, it seems like all anyone can talk about is starting high school next year—something she finds terrifying.
Landry gets her first boyfriend, but then gets dumped just as things come to a head with her friends. She feels lost and left out, but finds good advice from what she considers an unlikely source. Landry has to deal with learning how to speak up for what’s right, tell the truth (even when it hurts), and how to get past the fear of failure as she gets another shot at competing in the American Ingénue modeling competition.
I loved Landry's character. She is so blunt, honest, and immature sounding. It makes her sound like an actual 14 year old, and not an teenager with an adult's voice. Landry is an awesome girl who is a model yet very self conscious.
I liked how Landry's mom is a realistic mother. She was really a part of the story, and did not let Landry do modeling if it would interfere with school. She was also very cautious about letting Landry go out with friends.
The issues they talk about in this book are normal teenage ones. Landry deals with parental issues, friends dissing her, and having an older boyfriend. The overall moral of the story is that being a kid is hard, yet something that should be fun.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and all of the friendship aspects that Hager put in it. Landry had real friend disagreements, yet became a better person because of it.
