The Best of Friends (by Joanna Trollope)

'The Best of Friends' is a modern novel by Joanna Trollope.

This story is told from the point of view of Sophie, a teenager whose father decides to move out. Her hurt is clearly described alongside her mother's pain, which then infects their closest friends. These include Lawrence, who has been Sophie's mother's closest platonic friend for many years.

A realistic book with cleverly interwoven sub-plots to heighten the emotions, and a satisfying conclusion without tragedy.

Recommended.
