10 YA NOVELS THAT REMIND YOU TRUE FRIENDSHIP NEVER DIES
If there’s one thing YA books are great at, it’s being life-affirming hugs of comfort and joy. So to rekindle your belief in love, we’ve picked out some of the best girl-mances in YA books that will restore your faith in friendship.
Suzanne & Caddy from Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard
This was one of the best debuts of 2016, and one of the things readers loved most about this book was that it focused on the diversity of female friendships and not on romance.
Caddy and Suzanne’s relationship is complex, interesting and brings out the best in both of them in brilliant realism. This will give you all the friend feels!
Evie, Lottie and Amber from The Spinster Club Series by Holly Bourne
Holly Bourne writes female friendships so well, and it’s a pleasure to see the beginnings of the Spinster Club in Am I Normal Yet?
The girls are distinct and different, but supportive and so much fun to read. You will want to join their feminist squad for sure after reading this!
Kaz and Ruby from Remix by Non Pratt
Summer , your best friend and a music festival – what more could a girl ask for?
This brilliantly summery tale from the incredible Non Pratt painted the picture of a very real friendship that we can all recognise. Differences in your personalities, but true love deep down all the way.
Limpett, Stefan and Jared from The Last Summer of Us by Maggie Harcourt
While there is some underlying romantic tension in these friendships, we think that’s one of the best things about them. How often do we find 100% purely platonic relationships between men and women afterall?
You’ll love the way Maggie plays with this and keeps you guessing, all the while weaving the cutest of friendship moments in there.
Violet and Raven from The Jewel by Amy Ewing
It’s not just contemporary YAs that rule at amazing friendships. Amy Ewing’s hugely popular fantasy novel follows surrogates who are auctioned off to give birth for noble families.
Violet’s dedication to Raven and how that drives her is one of the most heartfelt relationships in a fantasy YA we’ve read in a real long time.
