Best friends forever.
That’s the pact you made.
You’d do anything for her.
And you have.
She’s always had it all.
If you could take it for yourself . . . would you?
Caroline England’s new psychological thriller is brilliant, twisty read.
Fantastic story, full of twists and turns. Love the family element, and the secret world of school friends. Things are not always as they seem!
The story revolves around two school friends, Jo Wragg and Kate Bayden-Jones, and their respective partners and family. It’s told from the perspective of Jo, and flicks back and forth between the schooldays of around 30 years ago and the present day.
The two girls go off to boarding school when they are young. Coming from totally different backgrounds they are roomed together and become best friends. Jo, from a newly rich family and Kate from old-school wealth. Jo is self-conscious about her background, forever known as ‘the ragamuffin from Barnsley’. Kate is posher, her Mum sending food parcels with ‘treats’.
Are there are secrets lurking that could destroy the friendship? Things start to be revealed to the reader, and you start to wonder. Do we ever really know our best friends? I mean really know? Even though they’ve known each other all these years there are things they certainly don’t know about each other. Big, massive, huge things!
This totally drew me in and I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend it, tense, disturbing and very clever.
I loved the ending…oh yes, get in!!
