I have been a Kody Keplinger fan since the beginning. I love all her books, but RUN is a bit different from past books. But it's that difference that made it even more special. Because while I have come to love the way Keplinger writes a romance, the romance this time around is between two best friends.
OK, no romance, but the love story is that these two girls - Bo and Agnes - are besties who will move heaven and earth for each other. Their love transcends "romantic love". It is, in fact, what love truly is. Absolute faith and trust in some one else.
Told in true-to-form Keplinger style with humor and heart, RUN is a brilliant book that will leave you wanting to cuddle your best friend and be thankful that you have one of your own.
Now where's my bestie?
Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.
Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.
Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.
So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and -- worst of all -- confronting some ugly secrets.
