leave me alone... I am working
When 30-something Jorah lands back in her hometown of Omaha, it's raining outside. Her hoarder mother has redecorated her childhood bedroom like it's 1998, she's avoiding her best friend's calls and living with a secret.
Driven by the need to reconcile her past life with her current one, Jorah reconnects with her friends from childhood. Shepherd, a movie-ticketer-turned-felon and Stassi, a frenemy with ulterior motives and a smile. Through their interactions, Jorah learns some things never change and others are irrevocably torn. Sometimes the only thing friends have in common is shared history.
Packed with wild prose, stunning visuals, and surprising twists, Childhood Friends is an incredible look into the power of friendships, the call of humility, and how the journey of life always leads back home.
