~Cover Attraction and Waiting On Wednesday~



My Cover Attraction and Waiting On Wednesday are one and the same; Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner! Publish date July 14, 2009.

Cover Attraction is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. She says "I'm a very visual person and love beautiful or interesting cover art. It entices, and invites me to stop and take a peek, instead of walking right on by."

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

From Amazon.com:
Some bonds can never be broken...

Addie Downs and Valerie Adler will be best friends forever. That's what Addie believes after Valerie moves across the street when they're both nine years old. But in the wake of betrayal during their teenage years, Val is swept into the popular crowd, while mousy, sullen Addie becomes her school's scapegoat.

Flash-forward fifteen years. Valerie Adler has found a measure of fame and fortune working as the weathergirl at the local TV station. Addie Downs lives alone in her parents' house in their small hometown of Pleasant Ridge, Illinois, caring for a troubled brother and trying to meet Prince Charming on the Internet. She's just returned from Bad Date #6 when she opens her door to find her long-gone best friend standing there, a terrified look on her face and blood on the sleeve of her coat. "Something horrible has happened," Val tells Addie, "and you're the only one who can help."

Best Friends Forever is a grand, hilarious, edge-of-your-seat adventure; a story about betrayal and loyalty, family history and small-town secrets. It's about living through tragedy, finding love where you least expect it, and the ties that keep best friends together.

Why I like the cover: I am a sucker for any book that has a beach scene on the cover. I love the muted colors on this cover, they are soothing to the eye. I can also identify with the two friends walking on the beach, maybe in the late afternoon, sharing stories and secrets.
