Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How far would you go for the best friend who broke your heart? This internationally bestselling novel tells an enchanting tale of lifes most unpredictable loves and heartaches, and the unforgettable bond between a single woman and an extraordinary five-year-old girl. From the moment they met in college, best friends Adele Brannon and Kamryn Matika thought nothing could come between them—until Adele did the unthinkable and slept with Kamryns fiancé, Nate. Now, after years of silence, the two women are reuniting, and Adele has a stunning request for her old friend: she wants Kamryn to adopt her five-year-old daughter, Tegan.

Besides the difference in skin color—many will assume that headstrong, impulsive Kamryn is Tegans nanny—theres the inconvenient truth that Kamryn is wholly unprepared to take care of anyone, especially someone who reminds her so much of Nate. With crises brewing at work and her love life in shambles, can Kamryn somehow become the mother a little girl needs her to be?

In My Best Friends Girl, Dorothy Koomson takes us on a warm and wondrous journey through laughter and tears, forgiveness and hope—and the enduring love forged by the unlikeliest of families.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review:

"When Kamryn 'Ryn' Matika gets a call from college friend Adele 'Del' Brannon, she reluctantly heads to the hospital where Adele is dying of cancer. The two had been odd couple friends (working-class Ryn is black, posh Adele is white) while attending Leeds University, but their friendship did not survive Del's admission of an affair with Ryn's fianc Nate Turner, which also ended Ryn's relationship with Nate. The affair did result, however, in the now-five-year-old Tegan, and Del has called Ryn to ask her to adopt the adorable girl. Ryn agrees, but must face down Del's stepmother, Muriel, to do it. She finds surprising help from new boss Luke Wiseman, who, after meeting her unceremoniously, loves Tegan (and eventually Ryn, too), but the return of Nate, who doesn't know Tegan is his daughter, promises to reopen old wounds. Koomson's U.S. debut is a three-hankie delight." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

From the synopsis on the back of this book I was hooked. "My Best Friend's Girl" shows how relationships and friendships can change(or not) over time.

I judged this book by its cover and let me tell you...it was an AWESOME and moving book. The storyline will get you from the first word. This tells a story of a truly deep friendship that has to make life changing events for a child. Not many people would be willing to do what this lady did for her best friend.

A must read for anyone that wants to read a truly great book.
