Emily knows the meaning of Best Friends Forever. She and her friends have built a close relationship, if dangerous at times. But after a terrible accident separates Emily from her friends, she falls into a depression so deep she feels there’s no way out. Until her little brother goes missing – and he’s not the first or the only one. Author Patti Larsen delves deep into disturbing and dark issues most writers for young adults avoid; however, shining the light on those dark places is exactly what makes Best Friends Forever one of the great books for teenaged girls.
