This book was very realistic and I think Melody does a great job of portraying of what happens when we compromise our faith to have that "best" friend! I really loved the near end of the book as soon as Lishia becomes open and honest while seeking Christ! I also loved the Bible verses that she reads! I have thought that at one time that the money was just talking about money, but like Lishia I realized that it goes much deeper then that! Despite that I'm out of high school and in college I still learned some things from this book that made me rethink my motives behind my actions as well as why I'm doing it! Looking forward to the next book in the series because I know I won't be disappointed! :)
The Best Friend is a teen book that many girls can identify with. I recall the days when true friends were hard to come by and everyone wanted to run with the in crowd. The authors captures this well. She also shows how distorted perceptions and half-truths can alienate real friends, plus they can create rifts between people that are hard to bridge. On the other hand the author shows how Christian friends can wrap around the hurting teens and loved them back into the fold. Plus God can even use the person who strayed off the path to lead another person into the fold who would never have been reached any other way. God uses even our mistakes to work His will in this world. Lots of good lessons and themes in this book. I have to say that I wasn't fond of Lishia for most of the book, and Riley I have never been fond of. That girl is a mess. But the bottom line is there is a good message about friendship in this story that will reach teens, and it shows how confession really is good for the soul. I enjoyed the book and read it straight through.
