“Three best friends, who call themselves 'The Darlings' face their freshmen year of high school in three different schools. After swearing their friendship will never change, they are immediately faced with the realities of making new friends, meeting boys, and remaining themselves in the face of peer pressure. A sweet and honest look at early female friendships.”
— Meaghan Beasley, Island Bookstore, Kitty Hawk, NC


Jane, Victoria, and Natalya. Together, they are the Darlings. Best friends forever. They have matching necklaces, their own table at Ga Ga Noodle, and even a shared motto: May you always do what you're afraid of doing.

When the friends begin freshman year at three different high schools in distant corners of New York City, they promise to live by their motto and stay as close as ever. The Darlings know they can get through anything as long as they have each other. But doing scary new things is a lot easier with your friends beside you. And now that the girls aren't spending all their time together, everything they took for granted about their friendship starts to feel less certain. They can't help but wonder, will they really be the Darlings forever?

The first book in an exciting new series by bestselling author Melissa Kantor, The DarlingsAre Forever will speak to any girl who has ever had a best friend.
