In her honor, I thought I'd do a salute to books about best-friendship. In no particular order, and just off the top of my head, here are a few wonderful tributes to friendship--and to the ways friends love us at our best and worst, and help us grow, and change, and become, and learn to recognize our truest selves.
Toot and Puddle *** Gossie and Gertie *** Best Friends for Frances
Say Goodnight, Gracie *** Sweethearts *** Before I Fall
But I'm sure I'm missing about a million stories that belong on this list! So you tell me: what are some of your favorite books about friendship?
