Jane Green, author of the best-sellers Second Chance and Straight Talking, examines friendships and their limits in her highly entertaining novel Bookends. On the shelf, but still best friends . . . Cath is scatty, messy and guarded. While Si is impossibly tidy, bitchy and desperate for a man of his own. They are total opposites - but equally unlucky in love. And they've stuck together through thick and thin. Because that's what best friends do. So when their beautiful friend Portia - the undisputed queen of their group of friends at university - steps back into their lives, after a ten year gap, her reappearance tests both Cath and Si's friendship to the limit. What does Portia want? Will she be a force for good in their lives, or something darker? And will Cath and Si ever get lucky in love? 'Funny and poignant - you'll devour it in one sitting' Cosmopolitan 'Quick, witty, unputdownable and perfect beach reading' Daily Mirror 'Hugely enjoyable' Daily Express Best selling author Jane Green has captured the imaginations of readers in the UK and the US with her frank and funny approach to those day-to-day issues that affect women everywhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Green gives readers a loably imperfect protagonist, a heart-to-heart narrative voice and a bumpy, error-strewn highway to romance. Bottom line: Pluck it off the shelf."
-People

"A near-perfect romantic wish-fulfillment fantasy...only the coldest hearts will not be warmed."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Single or spoken for, you'll find a character you can relate to in this page-turner about dating, marriage, parenthood, career goals, jealousy and of course love."
-iVillage

"You'll love this one...a bit of candy perfect for the bath, pool, or beach."
-Lexington Express
