BFF A & BFF K – DUO REVIEW of Franco
BFF A’s Review
Bright Side breaks your heart.
Gus heals your soul.
Franco makes you smile.
I love Franco so much! Meeting him in Bright Side and Gus, I knew a little bit about him, but I have a whole new appreciation for him now. He and Gus have an amazing friendship. Seriously, they are the relationship everyone needs to have with at least one person in their life. Unconditional, no questions, laugh, cry, shenanigan creating friend. #goals #dudebestfriends
Franco meets Gemma. I like her right away and know she is my kind of girl because she doesn’t like beans and guacamole. (I know, seems really weird from a taco loving person.) She is an independent girl who knows exactly what she wants and has a plan in place that fits her style, life and timeline. Gemma and Franco fit perfectly together. They are real, they are a perfect compliment to one another.
“There are some people in life that you can vent to, or pour out sadness to, or voice frustrations to, and they readily and willingly absorb it for the sole purpose of ridding you of it. They’re the same people who can immediately replace that negativity with their light. Their presence gives you the power to purge the bad and embrace the good. It’s rare. I’ve only known a few people in my life who are that way.”
Franco is unconditional in all of his relationships, he is so easy to love, to want what is best for him, because he is always puts others first.
“I’m just going to hold her because sometimes touch is the only way to tell someone that you care unconditionally. It doesn’t require complemented, deep explanation- it only requires effort. Effort is who I am, I can give her effort all night long.”
Seriously, how can you not love a guy like this?
And this is the absolute truth, favorite words spoken by Franco, a perfect summary to the entire series.
“We all have issues and we all do our best to overcome them. Hold close the peeps you love while you’re going through your shit, that’s all any of us can do.”
Kim Holden does not disappoint. She has such a magical way of making everything seem right in the world, even when your heart is breaking, you feel her love and support through Kate, Gus and definitely Franco. This is such a perfect ending to such a soul touching series. It makes me smile.
