The Best of Friends might make a good beach read, simple and quick. However, I couldn’t find one character in this book that I actually liked! This is the story of two friends, Jayne and Rebecca. Jayne is the poor, studious nice girl. Rebecca, of course, is the spoiled, bratty rich girl. With the gorgeous older brother that Jayne has always had a crush on but has never noticed her. With the rich parents that have taken poor Jayne in to be a good influence on Rebecca. You get it, right???? So of course poor Jayne feels used by Rebecca and her family, while at the same time feeling she is not good enough for the brother that has finally noticed her and falls in love with her. If you think you know how it all turns out, you are probably right.
