"NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER Five children meet on the first day of kindergarten. In the years that follow, they become friends and more than friends. Together, they will find strength, meet challenges, face life s adventures, endure loss, face stark realities, and open their hearts. In this moving novel, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Danielle Steel traces their unforgettable journey full of tests and trials as three boys and two girls discover the vital bonds that will last a lifetime. FRIENDS FOREVER Gabby, Billy, Izzie, Andy, and Sean each bursting with their own personality, strikingly different looks and talents, in sports, science, and the arts. Each drawn by the magical spark of connection that happens to the young. At the exclusive Atwood School, on a bright September day, starting in kindergarten they become an inseparable group known to outsiders as the Big Five. In this rarefied world, five families grow closer, and five children bloom beside one another, unaware of the storms gathering around them. As they turn from grade-schoolers to teenagers, seemingly perfect lives are buffeted by unraveling families, unfortunate missteps, and losses and victories great and small. And, one by one, they turn back to the Big Five to regain their footing and their steady course. But as they emerge from Atwood and enter the college years, the way forward is neither safe nor clear. As their lives separate and diverge, the challenges and risks become greater, the losses sharper, and the right paths harder to choose, in a journey of friendship, survival, and love. In what may be her most intricate and emotionally powerful novel yet, Danielle Steel tells a heart-wrenching, ultimately triumphant story that spans decades, weaves together a vivid cast of characters, and captures the challenges we face in life sometimes, if we re lucky, with a friend forever by our side.

Reviews

This latest novel by the best-selling author is a story of friendship and lifelong ties rather than romance. From the first day of kindergarten to adulthood, three boys and two girls are joined in friendship, love, challenges, successes, and failures. Each character brings unique abilities to the friendship mix, and the listener will be swept along on the ride. The majority of the story is entertaining, but the ending is weak and rushed. In this performance featuring a large and varied cast of children and parents, narrator Nick Podehl clearly defines each person and their place in the overall story. VERDICT Recommended for Steel's fans who don't mind a slight departure from her usual plotlines. [The Delacorte hc was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-J.
