This book was a little long winded. The premise of the book was a good idea but it took forever for any action to happen and then suddenly the book was over. I think the author could have spent less time (and words!) describing each thought the characters ever had. I would have rather read more about the reason "why" one of the main character's left (rather than she just needed a change) or give the story a more substantial ending.

Years earlier, three young people met at college and became inseparable. Cat, Pen, and Will spent their college lives together. Six years ago when first Cat, and then Will, walked out of Pen's life, she was lost. She has since made a life, had a daughter and mourned her father, but she has continued to miss her friends.
When she gets an email from Cat asking her to meet at their college reunion, she knows she must go. Will gets a similar email and also finds himself compelled to go. But Cat isn't what they find when they get there, and the search for her leads them around the world and finds themselves doing things they never thought they would. A tale of friendship, missed opportunities, and enduring love, this is a feel good novel with characters that come alive. Pen's daughter Augusta is a real cutie and steals the show when she is around. The language that exists between Pen and Will reminds readers of that special way of communicating that good friends have, the shorthand and easy back and forth that is one of the best parts of this book.

A poignant story about the power of true friendship and all of the complications that come along with it. Emotional and funny, with realistically flawed and relatable characters. The descriptions of the Philippines are vivid and magical. This book can be slow at times but it's worth persevering.

Way too "cutsey"; the witty banter was annoying!
