Yesterday is a novel teeming with adult secrets, betrayals, parental neglect and cruelty. This book clearly illustrates that the road to hell is indeed paved with good intentions. Yesterday will remind you of the resilience of children, the loyalty of friends, and that home is definitely where the heart is. Bode, Brie, Sela, and Callie meet at the young ages of 6, 5, 4 1/2, and 4. The one constant source of love and comfort in their lives from that point on, is Mama Pearl; the giver of endless hugs and kisses. The laughter, tears, redemption, forgiveness and love, both romantic and platonic, found within the pages of this unforgettable story, will stay with you long after the ending.

This book for me was a letdown. I have always enjoyed Fern Michaels books, but this one just wasn't believable. First of all, Bode doesn't notice he isn't black and Callie doesn't notice she is black? I don't think so. Who would allow someone to lay in bed and just die like Mama Pearl did without getting her whatever treatment they could. None of them even attempted to do anything. Not believable in this day and age. Also, it was very confusing about who loved who. Looking forward to the NEXT Fern book.

I would have given the book two stars had it not been for the character Mama Pearl. She was the only character worth sympathizing with. Plus, despite my misgivings about the characters in the book (see below), I did enjoy the storyline. In a work of fiction I don't normally require every aspect of the book to be believable but there should be some modicum of plausibility in it. The four young characters did not seem to be life long friends. Callie's character seemed to head in different directions. At first she simply seemed a little capricious and self centered but who doesn't have faults? But she then made a transformation that was quite horrific and any humanity she had at the begining was quickly stripped from her. Sela's character was underdeveloped and she seemed an afterthought. I never really developed a sense of who she was. Although Brie's character was a bit more developed, it did not make her more sympathetic. And finally Bode, in the author's quest to make him a perfect man, she left out his personality. These four characters were supposed to be best friends and yet they are forever jealous of one another and make the snidest remarks. True, friends often fight and are seldom always in awe of each other, but I didn't get the sense that these girls were friends at all and that they regretted their spiteful words to each other. All in all it was a book that left me disappointed. Still, it wasn't terrible.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, since I loved Fern Michaels' 'Finders Keepers'. This story line was good and I loved Mama Pearl, but I thought that the 3 girlfriends were so immature, always saying they hated eachother, and even dancing in the mud! And I found it terribly unbelievable that Callie and Bode were of mixed races, and didn't have a clue about it! Crazy.... (at least Bode got one of them!)

This book was great. It, however, was somewhat predictable. I really loved Mama Pearl. Everyone should have someone like her in thier lives. Even though Calli, Brie, Sela, and Bode were supposed to be friends, you would have thought they were the worst of enemies at times! I also find it pretty hard to believe who Calli and Bode REALLY are. Nonetheless, it was enjoyable to read.
