Best Friends. In war books they die. In romance novels they encourage the heroine to give the hero a chance (unless they’re evil in which they try to steal the hero). But can they ever serve a purpose besides simply propping up the main character in some way?
I think so.
What are some awesome books with good best friends? Here’s a few:
Patrick Carr’s A Cast of Stones (although arguably they’re not best friends until the end of the series)
Jill Williamson…almost anything she writes, but
Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series (best friends who adopt each other)
These are just a few. What books have you read that have good best friends?
