For whatever reason, I own several of Jennifer Weiner's books, but this is the first that I've sat down to actually read. I will have to fix that and soon!

Addie Downs and Valerie Adler become best friends when Val moves in across the street from Addie at age 9. But as they grow older, they move apart - Val is the popular cheerleader and Addie the fattie. Flash forward fifteen years when Val shows up on Addie's doorstep claiming something horrible has happened and only she can help.

The book examines the true strength of friendships and although I found some of the happenings within the book to be utterly preposterous, that's okay. I'm still breaking out some her older books.
