Will, Cat and Pen became friends over Beowulf at college. They remained BFFs throughout their undergraduate years, but their friendship ended when Cat married her long term boyfriend Jason; who Will and Pen loathed. As they graduated, the trio agreed to never contact one another ever again.

Six years later, Cat emails her two former BFFs pleading with them to attend the college reunion so they can see one another. Unable to resist, Pen accompanied by her five years old daughter Augusta and Will go to the reunion to see Cat. Both are stunned with what awaits them at the reunion and beyond.

This is a terrific character study that deftly changes into an engaging mystery. The cast is extremely well developed and not just the lead trio as the support players bring plenty of oomph to the plot. Readers will want to travel with the three protagonists on a journey of awakening even though the walk down the Yellowbrick Road is too long and straightforward; as the trio and fans learn not all that glitters is gold and some that does not glitter is golden.

I found it hard to grasp the reasoning Cat, Will and Penn used to end their friendship and to never contact each other after Cat married. The determination Will and Penn put forth to find her seemed misplaced after they had spent six years with no contact at all. Her husband seemed more like a stalker than a person who really understood his wife and their relationships. Cat's daughter seemed to bear the brunt of the hardships of the search. The happy ending seemed contrived and I found myself wondering why Cat and Will who were supposed to be the loves of each other's life never bothered to contact each other for six years. The promise to stay apart was juvenile in its premise and made the whole book seem trite.

    From the description of this book, I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into and this was my first trip with Marisa de los Santos, after reading this book I will definitely be reading her collection and looking forward to more! Told from Pen's point of view, I didn't realize until the end how she saw life and their tri-friendship through rose colored glasses and avoided seeing some of the negative moments in their friendship.

    Incredible author

    I do not agree with the other reviews that insist this story is 'boring' or predictable. The characters are incredibly well developed, and their relationships make sense to the point where I could not help but stop and think about my own close relationships. This is the first of very many novels that I will be reading from her. If you appreciate good storytelling, witty dialogue, endearing characters (augusta!), and actual overall creative writing (rather than the BOOM POP BANG Michael Bays style stories) then you will definitely enjoy this.
