Review: Better Off Friends By: Elizabeth Eulberg

Better Off FriendsBetter Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cute tale of male/female friendship told from two different standpoints.
Macallan has experienced so much loss at an early age, it changed her. Having her father and her "special" uncle only goes so far, her friends and their families changed a bit once her mother died, so did she. That is until one day a new kid came into school and they began to talk. A friendship developed and over the years nothing and no one could stand the test of their devotion to each other - except each other.
Levi, the new kid. Found a connection with a girl and might have gotten razzed for it even though he got some male friends, no one could come close to being his best friend like Macallan. Once he confessed something deeper and she ran to her mother's family for the summer, but now he knows better.
I really enjoyed this story. With great snippets between chapters of the characters speaking to each other - a wonderful memory of When Harry Met Sally. I can say, been there.. had many male friends and loved the intensity the author brought forth about the stages that take shape. This is the book you will enjoy and feel great about letting your tween/teen daughter read.
