Loudmouthed, redheaded Cee Cee Bloom has her sights set on Hollywood. Bertie White, quiet and conservative, dreams of getting married and having children. In 1951, their childhood worlds collide in Atlantic City. Keeping in touch as pen pals, they reunite over the years ... always near the ocean.
Powerful and moving, this novel follows Cee Cee and Bertie's extraordinary friendship over the course of thirty years as they transform from adolescents into adults. A bestselling novel that became a hugely successful film, Beaches is funny, heartbreaking, and a tale that should be a part of every woman's library.

This story-the book and the movie, but there is really no difference- is amazing. I have read the book twice now, and the reason i found it was because on Mother’s Day, my mom and i watched the movie. We both cried, but it was ok because it was just awesome. I recommend this book to everyone!
Perfect bathtub book
I love this story of two childhood friends who grew up in totally different directions. This is great girl-literature - I read it at least once a year (usually on vacation) and I always laugh, cry, and feel stronger after reading. Ideal bathtub book; one of the best ever written.
