My Worldwide Quest to Find My Best Childhood Friends, Knock on Their Doors, and Ask Them to Come Out and Play.
Do you ever wonder what happened to all those friends from long ago? Danny Wallace did...
From the publisher:
"Danny Wallace has friends. He has a wife and goes to brunch, and his new house has a couch with throw pillows. But as he nears 30, he can't help wondering about his best childhood friends, whose names he finds in a long-forgotten address book. Where are they now-and where, really, is he?Acting on an impulse we've all had at least once, he travels from London to Berlin, Tokyo, Australia, and California, risking rejection and ridicule to show up on his old pals' doorsteps. Memories of his 1980s childhood-from Michael Jackson to Ghostbusters-overwhelm him as he meets former buddies who have blossomed into rappers and ninjas, time-traveling pioneers, mediocre restaurant managers, and even Fijian royalty.Danny's attempt to re-befriend them all gives remarkable new resonance to the age-old mantra, "friends forever!"

To be entered let me know if you're still in touch with any old friends. I still keep in touch with my oldest friend (Janice V you know who you are!) from grade 2 - not as much as we should, she's across the country - but it's still so easy to pick up where we left off every year or two when we do get together.
