Product Description

Book Description

Five friends on life’s journey of challenges, survival and love

From the Inside Flap

Five children meet on their first day of school, one bright September morning. Drawn by that magical spark of connection that happens to the young, Gabby, Billy, Izzie, Andy and Sean - each bursting with their own personality, all with strikingly different looks and diverse talents - soon become an inseparable group, known to everyone else as the Big Five.

As they grow up, their seemingly perfect lives are altered by families falling apart, unfortunate mistakes, and losses and victories great and small. Throughout their adolescence, the five are able to turn back to their trusted group to regain their footing and steady their course. But as they emerge from school, their futures seem neither safe nor clear. As their lives separate, the challenges and risks they face become greater, the losses sharper, and it becomes much harder to know the right path to choose.

But despite life's ups and downs, together they are able to face up to challenges with the help of the important bonds forged all those years ago. And the five realise just how lucky they are to treasure valuable friendships that last a lifetime.

Danielle Steel has written a fairly short novel concerning five children, Gabrielle (Gabby),Izzie,Billy,Andy and Sean. They obtain places at the high profile Atwood school in San Francisco. They start kindergarten on the same day and immediately find there is a chemistry between them that lasts throughout this school, high school and beyond. They call themselves the Big Five. All ambitious and bright. All with parenteral pressure and care. This is a story of a binding genuine friendship and relationship even when changes occur as they become older and diversify their interests. This is, however, also a story involving their parents and siblings as their circumstances affect the five friends. These throw up unexpected or inevitable developments. No spoilers other than to say it is an excellently written novel with sharply observant, witty dialogue, rapidly changing situations with a knock-on effect on the protagonists. These are profound. Real world situations compounded in a family and friendly scenario. Sometimes funny, many times sad. Beautifully constructed. Wonderful.

Having read every book Danielle Steel has written I was, well, quite disturbed by this story! I typed book reviews into the search engine before writing this, and it turns out that I am not the only one to think this way. Although works of fiction, Danielle has maintained a sense of reality in her stories throughout. Without spoiling the whole story; I found that the things that happended to the 'friends' very unrealistic...almost akin to the final destination films!!! I could think of some lovely things that these characters could have encountered in adult life, such as marraige and having babies of their own, but their futures growing up are black and traggic, although they all have fantastic families in wealthy surroundings, they all coincidently have hugely tragic lives....maybe just one character dying could have been worked into the story!!? Definately not a cheery one from start to finish. The only thing to chuckle at is with the shere disbelief of it all towards the end of the book......

Format: Paperback
SPOILERS!
I haven't read a Danielle Steel book for about 30 years and probably won't read another one! I had hoped for a warm, engaging story about lifelong friendships: instead I got a dull tale written in short simple sentences with some of the most unrealistic and unauthentic dialogue between children ever written. The story is paper thin and the characters very one dimensional.
The friends do stay friends for life but suffice it to say that those lives are not very long and peppered with awful things happening. I appreciate that tragedies do happen in life - and the dedication at the front of the book goes some way to explain the writer's preoccupation with the deaths of young people - but if you prefer satisfying reads with some real human emotion, then this is not the book for you.

Format: Paperback
Have read a few DS novels over the years & thought that I knew the formula;- usually a tragedy or life changing event followed by the characters adapting to changed cirmcumstances & eventually, after many twists & turns ending up happy ever after.
Decided this was just whatI needed after the book I had just read (but that's a dfferent story- see previous reviews....).
Anyway ,what can I say about this book without giving too much away?
Not a lot, but don't expect just one tragedy.
I actually enjoyed this but thought that it was getting bit too OTT by the end.
I think maybe DS has lost the plot a little & might be trying to see how many books she can produce in a year!Quick check on Amazon confirms that this could be the case as her writing does appear to be getting ever more prolific.
However, it's a winning formula so why not?
I enjoyed it for what it was & while I don't read every book she publishes I will no doubt sit down & read another one by the end of the year.
Enough said.

I just finished reading this and have to say, yes it's shorter than most DS books but, I still found it very enjoyable. I loved the fact that she involved the siblings and parents of the 5 main characters, it gave the characters more depth and allowed you more insight into the 5 main characters lives. It also helped you understand why the 5 main characters did certain thing and why their lives took the path they did later on in their collective lives.

I couldn't help thinking of my own 5 bestfriends and how I only speak to 2 of them still to this day. Not because of falling out with them but, because I moved around a lot during my childhood and they kind of fell away and we lost touch. I did try getting back into contact again with the 3 I lost touch with but, we all found that we'd changed to much and never really clicked like we did as kids. It's sad and I still miss them but, sometime you just can't get that chemistry you once shared as kids back. The other 2 don't live near me or each other but, we still talk over the net together and by texts so it's nice knowing we're still there for each other.

I loved this book, so don't be put off by the length or by the other reviewers. Give it a try and you never know, it might prompt you to get in contact with old friends from your childhood. Happy reading.

(I'm happy to discuss this book with anyone, so feel free to leave a comment.)
