This was an interesting read. The story was not at all what I expected, as in, it had more depth than I was thinking it would. The characters are interesting and it really does show well how women can remain friends through it all -- sometimes we get mad at each other, sometimes we disagree with each other, but in the end, we still really care about each other and will be there for each other. I enjoyed it. The topics discussed in it are murder, drugs, sex/AIDS/HIV, pornography. Basically not for a younger reader.
