Best Friends Forever

runI love a good friendship story. From picture books to teen fiction and everything in between, I have a particular weakness for the stories that portray deep and lasting friendships. I brought this up in my review of Kody Keplinger’s Run last year, which is a great example of a friendship story that explores how far we might go for our friends.

In my review I said, “. . .this book is about how a great friendship can change your life for the better, how it can inspire us to reach for more than what we might have otherwise. It isn’t always smooth or easy, but it is worth it.”

Check out this Spark Page for more great friendship stories for teens from Kathryn Ormsbee, John Corey Whaley, and Catherine Clark.
