'Cause You Gotta Have Friends

Sometimes, you just don't like some people.  I didn't like Willa Jacobs, the main character/narrator in Lauren Fox's "Friends Like Us." She's selfish, manipulative, and she got everything she deserved. I am reminded of  "Eat, Pray Love," that memoir. Willa purports herself to be BFFs with Jane, but she is extremely jealous of her, and tries to control her, and the situations they are in, to her liking. There was a very thin, simple non-story in the book, and you just know it wasn't a pretty one early on in the book. I finished not caring, and thankful that I do not have to spend any more time with these people.
