Megan did a piece on teenage friendship in novels for the Guardian and it set us off on trying to remember books that dealt with that subject.
Phil picked A SEPARATE PEACE (which was a uneasy friendship to my mind). My choice would be BIRDY by William Wharton. Both male friendships. It was harder to come up with an adult book that portrayed a female friendship between adolescents other than a new one IN ZANESVILLE by Joanne Beard, which I haven't yet read and Megan's new book, of course.
What books or stories about teenage friendship stand out for you? Hard to think of them, isn't it?
