Worth listening to again and again.

This is a story of two friends, who had been friends up until middle-school. Kate Faber and Marilyn MacKintosh have cracks in their friendship. Ever since Marilyn became a cheer-leader, Kate rarely got to see her. Through a life guitars and big shoes, Kate can always depend on Marilyn to be her best friend. This is a story of friendship, drama, and a little bit of romance. I, for one, loved this book. I listen to it every night. I must have listened to the whole story 10 times.
