„Men see women in two separate categories. There are the women they sleep with, and the women they fall in love with. And they will treat you differently based on that.” From the day they first meet as teenagers, Fern and Jessica are best friends. Despite their differences, they are there for each other through everything. That is until Jessica crosses a line that Fern can’t forgive. Now they haven’t seen each other for more than ten years when Jessica unexpectedly arrives back in Fern’s life. A lot has changed for them both – but can things really be that different between them now they are older? Or will their shared history ultimately be doomed to repeat itself again? Set between the present day and past, GIRL FRIENDS is a smart funny novel: both a joyful celebration of female friendship and a razor-sharp look at the damage we can all cause to those we claim to love the most.
