Book review: My Best Friend’s Girl by Dorothy Koomson

My Best Friend's GirlMy Best Friend’s Girl by Dorothy Koomson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve been meaning to read a Dorothy Koomson book for a while – people keep recommending them to me.

My Best Friend’s Girl is about Kamryn, who is asked by her best friend Adele to adopt her (Adele’s) little girl Tegan when she dies. Adele betrayed Kamryn in a pretty major way, so Kamryn has to forgive Adele and come to terms with the fact that Adele is dying all in a mad rush.

This is a book about trust and betrayal and grief. Kamryn grieves for her lost friend, her lost love, her lost future and all the while learning to be a mum to a little girl who is also grieving. Somewhere in amougst all that, she has to work out her feelings for Nate (Kamryn’s ex) and Luke (the new boyfriend and de facto Dad as far as Tegan’s concerned). To say her feelings are complicated would be an understatement.

I really enjoyed this book. It was emotionally satisfying read and I felt a little bruised when I emerged from it (in a good way). I’ll definitely read more by Dorothy Koomson.
