“Good friendships are durable. They’re meant to survive the gaps and the growing pains.” —Julie Murphy, Dumplin

Where would we be without our best friends? Our friends are such a huge part of our lives; we laugh with them, cry with them and show them sides of ourselves few others get to see. When we read a book (or watch a movie) that highlights a friendship, we might feel like we’re a part of that story for a short while, too. These stories can really draw us in and make us ride the rollercoaster of emotions, but that’s part of what makes them so worthwhile! And that’s why we’re celebrating best friends with National Best Friends Day on June 7. If you’d like to join in the fun, take a look at these book and movie suggestions.
