review: friends like us by lauren fox

In their mid-twenties and still trying to figure out what to do with their lives, roommates Willa and Jane are the best of friends and no man can ever come between them. That is, until Willa reunites with Ben, who was her best friend in high school. Unbeknownst to Willa, Ben had a crush on her for all those years. So it almost seems inevitable that Ben would now fall for Jane, who looks so much like Willa that people mistake them for sisters.

Friends Like Us is definitely one of the best books I've read this year. I found the story completely relatable, especially since the characters were perfectly flawed. By that I mean that they’re not such wonderful people as to be unbelievable nor do they behave so awfully that I would never want to be friends with them. Furthermore, the characters were hilarious (like when they're snarking at their friends' wedding) and I loved spending time with them even though I knew something would happen to ruin their friendship. It wasn't too hard to guess what that something would be considering Ben first loved Willa, then started dating Jane, but it was interesting to see how it happened.
