By Non Pratt
I was very fortunate to inherit two books by the brilliant Non upon my arrival at Simon & Schuster: Trouble and this novel (which had yet to be written). If you haven't read Trouble, what's wrong with you? Seriously, it's a wonderful book, about a young pregnant woman who finds her first true best friend in the most unlikely of places.
Remix is a great companion to Non's debut, as it also explores the inner workings of friendship. Ruby and Kaz have been best friends for years, but their lives are about to diverge. At the end of the summer, they go on a weekend getaway where their relationship will be tested to its limits. The girls' friendship reminded me so much of the one I had with my best friend in college (she's still my best friend)--wanting so desperately to impress her, keeping my shortcomings and bad decisions from her, yet loving and trusting her more than anyone.
