5 Stars for Best Friends by Ronald & Juanita Destra

 Today I am bringing you something a little different.  I saw this sign up on KC Book Promotions and thought it was a lovely book with a fantastic concept.  I know it doesn’t really fit in with the theme of the rest of my posts, but sometimes it’s good to throw a little something special into the mix.  So, I bring you…



Title: Best Friends 
Author: Ronald Destra & Juanita Destra
Release Date: 23 Sept 2016
Publisher: Destra World Books Publishing LLC


They met each other by a stroke of luck and became inseparable friends from then on. Both were faced with terminal birth defects that would make anybody desolate for fear of death, yet it did not stop them from being the best they can be individually and for each other.
Death did separate them physically but Joseph lives on, in his friend’s thoughts, brining smiles to his face as he has always done when was alive.

My Review:

5/5 Stars!

I loved this sweet book about two boys who became friends because of their shared experiences. They were both born with birth defects making them different from their friends. They were different from each other, but they became the best of friends.

What a great book about acceptance, friendship and loss. Complete with colorful, eye-catching illustrations that add nicely to the words on the page, Best Friends is great for kids of all ages and a nice parent/child reading experience.

Joseph was different from other children. He was born with a crippling handicap. As a child, he needed special attention and had to be watched around the clock. He had special parents, and they loved him unconditionally. I came into Joseph’s life when he was five years old.  I, myself, was born with a birth defect, and we bonded instantly. The doctors said I wouldn’t live to be a teenager but what hey didn’t know was I had a desire to live. Joseph would cry a lot; he was in so much pain, mostly from the medicines and treatments.
