Disappointing. An unlikable best friend, improbable plot points, and the characters' motivations were muddled. ( )

I enjoyed the book, but the story seemed a little far fetched to me. Other than that it was a cute, quick read. ( )

Not Jennifer's best, that's for sure. I have read all of her other books and really loved most of them, but I am struggling to finish this. I liked the childhood flashbacks and felt that the plot line was stronger than the present day moments between the friends.

What bothered me the most was that this book felt like a mash-up of some of her others, re-working the plot lines and characters that we have read about before in Good in Bed, Goodnight Nobody, etc. I didn't feel like anything new was introduced in this story.

I really hope that her next book is stronger than this one, because I usually love her work. ( )

The high school reunion for the Class of 1992 with dinner and dancing at the Lakeview Country Club should be a night of nostalgia and fun as it was the same location for the Senior Prom. One girlfriend (Valerie Alder) attended the reunion just as she went to the Senior Prom. The other girlfriend (Addie Downs) didn't go to the Senior Prom and has discarded every postcard with details about the reunion. On the night of the reunion Addie has arranged to meet her 6th blind date for dinner at a local restaurant using the same dating website during the last several weeks. Valerie is a meteorologist on the nightly news for a Chicago TV station and Addie works from home (actually her childhood home) painting watercolors for greeting cards in the small town of Pleasant Ridge, a suburb of Chicago. Val and Addie haven't seen each other since they were 17 so Val isn't sure what Addie's reaction will be when she knocks on Addie's door but the reunion is over and Val needs someone she can trust. Addie isn't sure she should answer that knock on the door but in some ways she's been waiting for that knock for a long time.

This novel is thought-provoking with mystery and humor exploring loyalty, vulnerability, perspective, and forgiveness against the backdrop of friendships and relationships. Does childhood friendship endure through high school? Does high school friendship endure to become forever friends? There are treasured memories, secrets shared, and dreams that seemed easy to achieve. Best friends know everything about each other. Don't they? Best friends have the same perspective about their past. Don't they? The novel explores how a choice that seems simple can have complexities beyond the moment of choice. It also explores that a night of fun can become a nightmare with long-lasting effects.

I would highly recommend this novel as a book club selection as it has a "Reader's Club Guide" with "Questions and Topics for Discussion," "Tips to Enhance Your Book Club Experience," and "A Conversation with Jennifer Weiner" that will easily generate even more interesting discussion. ( )

Wish I read the reviews before I wasted my time reading this one. Boring! ( )

Weiner's latest novel is already wedged into a special bookcase with the other books I reread every so often just because they make me happy
 
With its girl-on-the-lam main characters, "BFF" has less comfortable warmth than some of Weiner's previous works, but enough to keep me pleasantly looking forward to book 8.
 
The book leaves you feeling as though Weiner thought her first draft was too long so she highlighted random chunks of detail and hit the delete button. There are conclusions that seem unnatural and poorly developed secondary characters, such as police officers investigating the case who seem unnecessary. While Weiner's writing has heart, it falls flat and doesn't measure up to her previous works. She can do better. Much better.
 
Best Friends Forever is a delightful, emotional novel that's perfect for summer poolside reading. This is chick lit at its finest and lightest, but with just enough heart to make it come alive.

Best Friends Forever is a frothy treat. It's another superlative novel by Weiner, about a big girl with a bigger heart, that will have women and men of all sizes cheering.
