I'm a huge fan of Lindsey Kelk and her books and as much as I liked this book I am a bit disappointed that Nick wasn't more involved in this book than in the others. *sulk* As the book title already tells us, this book is a lot about a girl’s best friend but also about friendship altogether. Tess is lucky to have not only a best friend she can count on all the time but also a few other friends which have her back in time needed. I really liked to see Tess being supported by her friends when she wasn't sure about what's going on with her life at the moment. When Tess lost her job, her world got turned upside down. Without purpose in life, she didn't know who she was anymore and what she wanted to do with her life. And when she began to work as a photographer which was her dream job, she worked against all odds and tried not to listen to others who wanted to talk her out of it and told her that she wasn't good enough and that she would just throw away her life. Now she doesn’t really know what to do since photography is what she loves but without bookings there is no money. When Charlie offers her a high-paid position in his advertising company Tess is torn between the job she knows by heart and the security that comes within because of her knowledge and long-time experience and her new job she really loves and wants to continue but having no idea if it will work out any longer. In the end Tess stayed true to herself and fought hard for the things she enjoyed and wanted in life. I enjoyed reading about all her ups and downs and all the problems Tess had to struggle with – friendship, love, trust (in yourself and in others), hard work, expectations (of oneself and from others), not being afraid of doing the things we want to do and are happy in doing instead of just doing the things we should do or others expect us to do. =P Lucky for Tess, she is rich in friendship because she has some amazing friends which always have her back and stay at her side no matter what. With some good advices about life and a lot of funny and hilarious parts this book made me think about my life and if what I do for a living is making me happy. This book made me reflect a lot of things and rethink some decisions. I really loved all the characters – Tess, Al, Kekipi, Amy, Nick, Charlie, Paige. I was happy that Angela and Jenny joined in on the fun as well. Like I mentioned before, I was a bit sad that Nick didn't play a bigger part in this book but it was a great book nonetheless. Oh and let me tell you that I absolutely loved the ending. I LOVED the letters, the article and the note. *melt* *Big Heart*
Alright I'm slow..
