This is a sweet and quite short story about friendship and love. I’m not sure why it’s being marketed as “a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy”, but there you have it. Romantic: yes. Comedy: No.
The writing is very simple. It’s a little underdeveloped and easy to skim over, which made it a nice, quick read but not particularly engaging. The plot itself isn’t bad, if a little annoying in places because of how obvious and predictable it is. For some reason the author insists on trying to act like what’s happening isn’t totally obvious (e.g. the way each woman’s POV refers to the other as “her” instead of giving the name even though we clearly know who they mean). It isn’t a brilliant or especially original story but it’s entertaining nonetheless. I breezed through it very quickly and it didn’t drag at any point, despite its flaws.
School reunion time will place both women in the same place for the first time in years – a chance to explore their rift and rekindle their friendship – or time spent ignoring and avoiding one another, putting on the best face, and forgetting the encounter as soon as possible after. These are choices that both face….
Most surprising to this story was Pugh’s ability to give us two characters who were equally sympathetic, fairly open, and reasonably aware of the steps they each took in the dissolution of the once-close friendship. Both share their backstory and memories of their younger selves, dreams, spats, trials and tribulations, and dig to find the reason for their split, in the hopes that some resolution and perhaps a new friendship can be brought from the lessons learned. With plenty of twists in the revelations, the correlations to moments we all have experienced in some way or another is striking, bringing the story a poignancy and familiarity to many readers. Full of self-discovery, reflection and second chances, the story is a wonderful getaway that is deceptive in its simplicity, leaving readers with a full story and plenty to remember from their own lives.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
We follow the two main characters, Magda and Sophia whose gorgeous names I gasped at, already this novel oozed charm from the outset!
Magda used to be the girl everyone wanted to be – most likely to achieve her every wish. That is until suddenly her perfect life seems to be anything but!
Sophia has never regretted her life, sure it isn’t perfect, but being a single mum to a daughter she loves is pretty great. Perhaps she never moved away from home, or got to live out her dreams, but what she has right now isn’t so bad.
Both girls left school with their lives ahead of them, they promised they would be best friends forever however life is never that simple. Just what happened to drive these friends apart? Now they are both grown up, neither leading the life they’d both dreamed of but when an invitation out of the blue arrives inviting them to a school reunion their lives are thrown into a spin. Is it time to put the past behind them and that one big mistake that happened all those years ago …
Pugh excels in the characters she creates because you do really come to care about them. The book is infused with humour and there is no disputing she writes romance wonderfully, a real heart-warming book.
Quite dull in parts and hard to empathise with any of the characters, plus we are led to believe Tom is this cool as anything character but he basically isn't. Happy ending but quite frankly I didn't care.
