Book Review: My Best Friend’s Girl by Dorothy Koomson

One of my favorite books of all time is the timeless novel “My Best Friend’s Girl” by one of my favorite authors Dorothy Koomson. I have reviewed two of her books before on my blog “Good Night Beautiful” and “The Ice Cream Girls” … my favorite book however is the the first one i ever read for her “My Best Friend’s Girl” and now that i am reading it again, the loveliness of this books is just too overwehlming… i have to share it with you…

I just adore this book. It is so beautifully written… so realistic… so filled with emotions you would find your self lost in the pages… it’s the kind of book you wish you could lose sleep over so you could finish… it’s the kind of book you could forsace your social life just to flip it’s pages… If you ever took your life for granted and thought that you will stay the same for the rest of eternity… if you ever had a fight with someone and cut them off your life believing you will never cross their pass again… if you ever thought forgiveness was something beyond imaginable for a fatal mistake…  if you cannot imagine your self becoming responsible for another human being overnight… This is the book for you… the message is loud and clear… Never Say Never!

The official story on the back of the book…

“What would you do for the friend who broke your heart?
Best friends Kamryn Matika and Adele Brannon thought nothing could come between them – until Adele did the unthinkable and slept with Kamryn’s fiance, Nate. Worse still, she got pregnant and had his child. When Kamryn discovered the truth about their betrayal she vowed never to see any of them again.
Two years later, Kamryn receives a letter from Adele asking her to visit her in hospital. Adele is dying and begs Kamryn to adopt her daughter, Tegan. With a great job and a hectic social life, the last thing Kamryn needs is a five-year-old to disrupt things. Especially not one who reminds her of Nate. But with no one else to take care of Tegan and Adele fading fast, does she have any other choice? So begins a difficult journey that leads Kamryn towards forgiveness, love, responsibility and, ultimately, a better understanding of herself.”

    Have you ever read “Wuthering Heights” or “Jane Eyre?” Try reading “Love in the Time of Cholera” or “Like Water for Chocolate”, “The Good Earth” and even “Sweet Thursday” and come back to me.
