Loudmouthed, redheaded Cee Cee Bloom has her sights set on Hollywood. Bertie White, quiet and conservative, dreams of getting married and having children. In 1951, their childhood worlds collide in Atlantic City. Keeping in touch as pen pals, they reunite over the years ... always near the ocean. Powerful and moving, this novel follows Cee Cee and Bertie's extraordinary friendship over the course of thirty years as they transform from adolescents into adults. A bestselling novel that became a hugely successful film, Beaches is funny, heartbreaking, and a tale that should be a part of every woman's library.

I thought that this was a good story overall. It wasn't as powerful as I would have hoped the writing to be. I wasn't a big fan of the characters but their bond with each other was heartwarming. I felt that the execution was a bit on the slow side and that there could have been more stronger connection between the characters given their history. Overall, it was a nice story with a good message. I don't regret looking into this one.
