“The False Friend” by Myla Goldberg is a novel about friendships, trauma and memory and how we can be betrayed by all three. The main character is a young, professional woman named Celia who goes back home to disclose her truth about what happened to her best friend, Djuna, in junior high. The writing was pretty good, but it seemed the novel lacked some depth. I did enjoy reading the book, but was a bit disappointed by the ending. Not my favorite book of all time, but I have read much worse. If you are in the mood for a light read with a fairly interesting story, then you might like this book. (  )
