Blurb: I’m about to do something huge, and it could change…everything.
I met Matt in second grade, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We went to the same schools; studied at the same college. When we both got jobs in the same town, we shared an apartment. And when my life took an unexpected turn, Matt was there for me.
Every milestone in my life, he was there to share it. And what’s really amazing? After all these years, we’re still the best of friends. Which brings me to this fragile, heart-stopping moment: I want to tell him I love him, really love him, but I’m scared to death of what he’ll say. If I’ve got this all wrong, I’ll lose him – forever.
Review: Sometimes you meet your best friend for life at a very young age. David meets Matt in second grade. Sometimes every important event in your life is tied up with that person—you go to school together, you like the same stuff, you have all the fun you can have and all of the trouble you can get into.
But then life does throw curve balls at you, and plans to be together forever get derailed by family moves or different needs as you grow up. When that happens, you do the only logical thing. Pout. But, as life progresses, David and Matt remain good friends, best friends. Until one day, David sees Matt differently.
BFF is a sweet, funny, and touching tale that Michael Mola brings vividly to life. There is a good deal of pathos in a story where everyone but you can see what is happening between you and your best friend. Living together and loving each other is one thing. Sharing a home, a room, and the same outlook on life is good. Mola gives us this slow attraction with all the angst and humor you’d expect two clueless boys to blunder into. It is a sweet and funny journey that we ride along with from that first caper in the pond right up to the inevitable announcement that everyone—except David and Matt—knew was coming.
Michael Mola is a wonderful voice actor, and this book is well suited to his open style. This is a short book, but it is well written and fully performed. You go on the journey of two lives meant to be together. Buy the book; you will have a good time. The narration is clear and true to the story and is the perfect listen for an afternoon. You will laugh, you will tear up, and you will enjoy Mola’s voice throughout. Buy this book if you like the friends-to-lovers trope, but this book is more than that. Buy this book for the sweet, realistic story and the excellent voice work. Buy it because sometimes life is the most interesting thing you can live together, and this is a fun and heartwarming ride performed by an excellent voice actor.
