Have you ever been in a situation where you would do anything to help out a friend? The type where you know it will be hard, but ultimately better for them in the end? I can think of several off the top of my head, which made me instantly relate to Ace & Lilly’s determination to help their best friend, Chloe, in Diary of a Mad Fat Girl by Stephanie McAfee.
When Ace & Lilly found out about Chloe’s horrible marriage, they knew they had to step in. Between Ace’s strong will and Lilly’s social behavior, plus the help of some old and new friends, they worked hard to help Chloe see what was happening around her. Of course it wasn’t very easy, especially with resistance from Chloe, but everyone came together to get the job done.
In the end, everyone ended up happy, which is usually a sign of a good book in my opinion. And even though Ace, Lilly, and Chloe’s friendship was tested throughout the book, their relationship became stronger because of everything they went through together.
