My BFF and I have been friends for over two decades (yes, we even survived the 80's together). And one of the things we've always bonded over is books. (In fact, we're also authors together and run a website devoted to books together). So with her birthday coming up, I'm reminiscing about the books we've read throughout the years that are the ultimate tributes to friendship. And as a gift, I may just pick her up a copy or two (shh!!). But what books do you get your BFF who's read everything? Here are my favorite books about friendship that can be read again and again and again:




Summer Sisters  by Judy Blume. Published almost a decade ago, I will always love this novel about two girls who spent twenty summers together-from the age of twelve to thirty. But during their last summer, their friendship changed. And it isn't until one of them gets married, that they come back together and must face what happened. It's a timeless story of love and friendship. And it's written by Judy Blume!







Firefly Lane  by Kristin Hannah. A tear-jerker, impactful and memorable long after you put it down, Firefly Lane is the story of a complicated and yet special friendship that stands the test of time.
