My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Just Friends is a young adult with a cliffhanger. Will be interesting to see where Murphy takes us in the next book.
This book made me remember why high school was so dang hard. Monica nailed the attitude and constantly changing emotions of teenagers. Olivia, Dustin, and Emily have been best friends forever. This all changes the summer before Senior year when Olivia has to go spend the summer with her dad. Things happen while she is gone that will forever change their relationships.
Enter Ryan, the new kid that moved to town while Olivia is at her dads. He knowingly or unknowingly stirs the pot even more. He and Olivia have a connection but her best friend Emily has her eye on him.
“What I really want is for the everything to go back to the way it was before.”
You want to hug them, shake them and occasionally give them a swift kick in the booty. It is realistic teenage emotions, drama and inappropriate behavior. An entertaining read that I am sure any young adult enthusiasts will enjoy.
I received a copy for an honest review.
