Best Friends for Never
Written by Adrienne Maria Vrettos
Scholastic Press, 2016, Ages 12+
There is quite a bit of repetition throughout the book. Repetition is always good because is indicates importance. For example, "Forgotten, Promised, Forgotten, Promised" (p. 85) and "Break the Jinx, Break the Jinx, Break the Jinx" (p. 145). This second phrase is used a lot throughout the book. The author uses lots of descriptive words to describe the friendships and events that happen throughout the book.
There are no illustrations in the book, but there are pictures on the front and back covers. The front cover has bright colors with three teen girls wearing the same shirt and one teen girl wearing a different shirt. They are standing in grass with the title of the gook in girly colors: pink, purple, and white. The back cover is a picture of four teen girl's shoes with a quote in girly colors: pin purple, and white.
I would recommend this book, it talks about friendship, which is one of the main things we all have in our lives. I would say this book is for young adolescents ages 12 and up.
