Your Best Friend, Meredith

Your Best Friend, Meredith

For Ages: 9 - 13
Twelve-year-old Meredith's world is rocked when her best friend Anjali dies from a sudden and severe viral infection. In letters to Anjali, Meredith puzzles through how to cope with the ongoing challenges of school and regular life without her BFF by her side. Complicating matters is the new friendship she develops with Noah, the object of Meredith's and Anjali's shared crush, which leads first to guilt as Meredith and Noah grow closer and then ultimately to revelations that could change everything about what Meredith understands of friendship. Your Best Friend, Meredith is moving and sometimes sad but equal parts funny and accessible--never heavy--via the extremely authentic and relatable voice.
