BEST OF FRIENDS is a touching tale of friendship, family love and strength. Ms. Kelly has penned a dramatic story that touches on so many important issues in todayâ€™s society that I recommend that every woman read it. Adoption, breast cancer, infidelity, divorce, second chances at love, and teenage angst are all touched on in this novel. I laughed and cried my way through it, each page touched my heart and each character touched my soul.
