Book: The Friendship Breakup
Author: Annie Cathryn
Thank you NetGalley and Dreamscape media for an advanced audio copy.
The Friendship Breakup introduced me to one of my least favorite main characters in a book in recent memory. Fallon is a young mom who is dealing with some fallout from her group of mom friends. Fallon does not know what she did to be pushed out from the group and spends most of the book trying to figure it out.
Fallon and her friends come off as super immature, entitled, petty, and just very annoying. From getting to know Fallon I don’t think a reason is really needed to kick her out of the friend group. Then on the other hand getting kicked out of a group like that is kind of a blessing.
I am around the same age as Fallon and I can confidently say none of my friends act like this at our age. This is all high school drama at a time of your life when you shouldn’t worry about drama like this.
Fallon is extremely fortunate. She has a loving husband and a healthy child. So many people her age would give anything for that. It took her way too long to realize what she has is more than enough. At least she got there tough.
I have a hard time recommending this one. I don’t know who it’s for. The description says Fallon will be relatable for millennials, but I respectfully disagree with that statement. No one I know acts like that. I did like the ending and how it all came together but it’s too much immaturity before you get there.
Final score 2/5
