Friends Like These by Meg Rosoff – Book Review

It’s the eighties, New York. Beth has landed a dream summer internship at a newspaper along with four others, and quickly makes friends with quirky whirlwind Edie. But is getting caught up with Edie the best or worst thing that could happen to Beth?

I feel that there aren’t a lot of books around set in the eighties – or am I about to find myself reading every eighties book that there is? I enjoyed the world of New York in the eighties that Rosoff created, however I felt the book was overall very surface level, emotion-wise. It was one of those books where a lot happens, but I didn’t feel particularly engaged or connected to it. A good, quick read, but not a lot of depth.
