This novel presented a friendship that is not like your typical girl friendships- you know, the ones where all the girls are just so close and share everything and are practically sisters. This one presented one that is different, there are drifts between the girls and you realize, that's what makes it real and beautiful in its own way. The story presents friendship as something that is constantly being tested and worked on, and doesn't have to be perfect from the get-go.
Without spoiling the ending for those who haven't read it, I do want to say that I was surprised by the way things came out. For one thing, it does kind of explain some of the characters in the story, but it also makes you wonder if you can trust anyone at all. For someone whose been betrayed by her friends before, I totally understand Ruby's feelings. I loved one section near the end of the story:
Im not going to need Beth in the same way anymore. But I'm still going to need her. And she's going to need me too.
