Six great YA books about female friendship

At the BN Teen Blog Natasha Ochshorn tagged six great YA novels about female friendship, including:

The story follows best friends Enid and Becky through the summer after high school graduation, as they first continue on as normal, and then slowly drift apart. The book, more than almost anything else I’ve ever read, captures exactly how excruciating that kind of drift can be, how it can feel like a betrayal and a death all at once.
