Blurb:

I’m about to do something huge, and it could change… everything.
I met Matt in second grade, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We went to the same schools, studied at the same college. When we both got jobs in the same town, we shared an apartment. And when my life took an unexpected turn, Matt was there for me. Every milestone in my life, he was there to share it. And what’s really amazing? After all these years, we’re still the best of friends.
Which brings me to this fragile, heart-stopping moment: I want to tell him I love him, really love him, but I’m scared to death of what he’ll say. If I’ve got this all wrong, I’ll lose him—forever


BFF is a story of two boys starting out as childhood friends and their lives together as they grow up. There’s not really any angst, instead it’s more of a heartwarming atmosphere throughout the whole book with a few very sweet moments. They experience a few ups and downs but on the whole it feels more like a story of a loyal and strong friendship, of acceptance and openness when things turn out differently than expected.

Language is easy and it’s an enjoyable read if you want a book without emotional turmoil, and perfect to read after extreme angst. Kinda like the feeling when the water gets warmer near the shore after swimming further out the lake. What I enjoyed the most was the closeness they shared and how there was never any doubt how well they fit together.

The descriptions are down to a bare minimum, and the reader never gets to know what the characters look like or the surrounding areas where they live and such, but it puts the focus more on David and Matt, and their relationship.

Reading, to me, is as close to an addiction as one can come without crossing the line… completely. I read a lot, and many different genres. For me, stories have to be realistic and logical, within the perimeter set up by the author.
I don’t care for unnecessary angst and poorly researched facts or first person perspective in stories as most often I feel like I’m being told the story over a cup of coffee in that case. It’s even worse if the story has multiple first person point of views it changes between.
