The Gunners

Kauffman, Rebecca.
This is an engaging and beautifully written story of five childhood friends who reunite to attend the funeral of another member of their group who mysteriously stopped talking to them in high school. They've all undergone major changes in the decade since graduation, but questions still linger about why the deceased friend cut them out of her life. It's this central mystery that pushes the narrative forward and leads all of the group members to make life-changing decisions.The characters manage to be both quirky and true-to-life and by the end of the book, you'll feel as if you might've known them all a long time. This is a gem of a book and qualifies as one of my favourite stories of 2018.
