“Friends were the family you choose.”

The big question that kept swirling through my mind while I was reading was whether it was possible to renew a friendship after nineteen years of being apart? Morgan, Emily, Paige and Tiff were inseparable as teenagers, sharing their dreams, listening to music and fawning over all the cute boys, until one night, when everything fell apart. They all shared a secret from each other that came to light the night of their prom. After that, it was impossible for them to trust each other and they went on with their lives until Morgan sent her friends a cryptic message because she needed their help. All of them had issues they were dealing with and I was surprised they decided to help Morgan in her quest to find her son’s father. Most of the women only agreed to help her because they felt sorry for her son Olly, who was just an innocent bystander in their long-standing drama.

Throughout their journey, they all came to realize that being together again helped them with the struggles they were having. I was shocked at the big secret that was revealed during their search for Olly’s father, and I was certain that this information would forever tear them apart, but I was wrong. The bond they had from long ago was still there, and I was pleasantly surprised by the positive and meaningful ending. Friendships come and go but for Morgan, Emily, Paige and Tiff, reuniting was what they needed to go on with their lives.
