Overview

Kaleb and Marc have everything they can imagine until the economy takes it all away. Their love is on the brink of failure when clients turn into friends. A close group of friends experience the most turbulent of times. They deal with sex, money, cheating, drugs, losing jobs, obsessions, laughter, anger, humour, happiness, and greed. Lessons in failure are to be learned, but no matter what, friendship will always help lead the path to success.

The title was developed to reflect the turbulent times experienced over the last few years and what these characters did in the book to cope with all their losses and problems. They grabbed each other when everyone was down and with love, compassion, integrity, they were able to pick each other up one by one. We all experience really tough, hard times in our lives, but what or who do we turn to when we need that support. Many of us turn to friends or family members for a shoulder to cry on and this book really expresses those emotional boundaries. After going through so much pain, the characters in the book just allow nature to take it's course and move on with their lives, but with the support of their close friends.

The book has so much drama, real-life experiences relatable to everyone, sex, drugs, fighting, deaths, and many more. But through this all, these friends were able to say forget about what is happening, our friendship still never failed --- WE WIN!

Editorial Reviews

Iyliana Manalo
Having few good friends is a blessing and that's exactly what this book portrays, friendship that plays a major role in an ordinary person's life. Having a relationship as beautiful and pure as friendship works on many levels. You will always find your friend standing for you during the times of distress and sadness, and also what makes your life exciting and fun! Highly recommend to those who value the importance of family and friends, and also those who want to laugh and cry all in one chapter
Jus Debz
"Today, I have many friends, regardless of their race and sexual preferences. This book showed me that being open to diversity can give you a whole new perspective on life."
