"Always Girl" by Ginger Elinburg
She's the one you know you can count on.
The one who will drop everything, just to be by your side when you need her.
The one who answers your calls at three a.m. and never complains.
She's also the one who lays in bed at night, alone, crying herself to sleep.
The one who swallows her tears before answering your call.
The one who loves beyond reason, even when it hurts her.
She is your Always Girl.
"Always Girl" has a character that I feel that most women (perhaps some men too) can relate to when it comes to their past, current and/or friend's relationship.
Sloan is the main character. She doesn't see her worth because of a 'relationship' that she is in. Throughout the book, we see how difficult it is for a person to let go of their feelings and to move on. All along Sloan is a strong woman, she just needs a little umph to show her true potential to stand up for herself. Some serious umph. That's where her friend, Rachel, comes in.
Rachel is that one friend, who we all have (or should have). That friend who helps you through tough times. Brings you to your senses when you want to sit on the couch and binge watch a few shows on Netflix while crying. Rachel is that 'I have your back friend'.
Bryson...Ugh...this character. He is so well written that from his first scene in the book I hated him. Like despised the person he was (character).
The characters are well written. I was able to envision all of them. With a lot of books that I read, I can picture a few of the characters but never all of them. I liked being able to picture each character, their mannerisms, etc. The editing was nicely done too. That's another thing that catches my eyes- grammar.
All and all "Always Girl" is a great read. I highly recommend it.
