Right before they started high school, Colette’s best friend, Sadie, dumped her. Three years later, Colette is still lonely. She tries to be perfect for everyone left in her life: her parents, her younger brothers, her church youth group, even her boyfriend, Mark. But Colette is restless. And she misses Sadie.

Then Sadie tells Colette that she needs her old friend to join her on a family vacation to the Greek Islands, one that leaves in only a few days, and Colette is shocked to hear their old magic word: need. And she finds herself agreeing.

Colette tries to relax and enjoy her Grecian surroundings but it’s not easy to go on vacation with the person who hurt you most in the world. When the reason for the trip finally surfaces, Colette finds out this is not just a fun vacation. Sadie has kept an enormous secret from Colette for years . . . forever. It’s a summer full of surprises, but that just might be what Colette needs.


I feel like MY BEST FRIEND, MAYBE is a type of book that few of people can relate to, or at least it’s a feeling that I got while reading the book. Everyone at some point where they either drifted from their best friend, or lost one. I have been through it, more than once. One of my favorite things about this book was that it takes place in Greece, which is one place that I had always wanted to visit and after reading about it, I want to go explore it even more. The scenery that was described, where Sadie, Colette visited and the rest of the Pepper family sound astonishing, I was actually jealous of the characters. I can still picture it in my mind, even after finishing the novel. I had always enjoyed novels that had to do with any sort of travel, but especially if it was to a different country. MY BEST FRIEND, MAYBE wasn’t any different, I had enjoyed every second of it.

Colie & Sadie: I wasn’t sure what to think of their relationship. It was more of hate/ love sort of relationship, confusing kind of like Colie was confused what was going on. I could tell that there was tension between two of them, from a moment that Sadie asked Colette if she would come to Greece with her, for a wedding. Just like Colette, I was curious why she asked her to come with her, after all these years of ignoring her, avoiding her. It was not what I had expected. Not once did it enter my mind that Sadie might be gay. I was as shocked as Colette been and Sadie when she realized that she didn’t know. At first I wondered if they would end up together but I realized that it was Sam that Collette wanted and Rose that Sadie wanted. Despite what happened, the two of them made it in the end, and that had me smiling. Despite how Sadie treated Colette, I was rooting for them keep their friendship. They need each other.

Mark & Sam : I couldn’t decide who I preferred more with Colette, both of them were good for her, in their own way. I could tell that Mark loved Collette and I feel like she did at some point too. However I felt like Colette could be more herself around Sam then when she was with Mark, it’s like she was always afraid of how he might feel. But I could tell that in beginning she couldn’t decide, she seemed to be in a conflict between two of them. I don’t know how she didn’t realize how Sam felt about her, it was even obvious to me. He always seemed to want spend time with her, he was always smiling at her. He was crazy about her and I am just glad that two of them worked things out in the end. It looks like everybody got their happy ending in the end of the book. MY BEST FRIEND, MAYBE will have you go through all the emotions. It had started out a bit slow but once it picks up, you won’t be available to put down and will end up reading it till you reach the end, that’s what I did.

Astonishing book about love, friendship, acceptance and forgiveness.
