Can there be anyone closer than a relative? This story proves the answer is yes. These five women become best friends in childhood. They each have their own hopes and dreams for the future. They encourage each other as they work toward their own goals. What happens when life pulls them in different directions?
This touching story will remind you of family members you were close to during childhood. It's a story of strength and courage. The young women in this book are remarkable. I found them to be perfect role models for young girls today.
I did find some issues. This book reads awkwardly. It has a jerky, stop and start kind of read to it. This book also contains two books. It should have been divided as such to make the reading easier. The beginning needs a little more substance. It feels "watered down". It's as though part of the story is missing. This book is definitely for teens.
I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because what of the story contained in the book is worth reading.
