The Myth of You & Me by Leah Stewart

Title: The Myth of You and Me

Author: Leah Stewart

Genre: Women's Lit

Summary: Cameron as one last task to complete for her now deased employer -- deliver a package to her estranged best friend.

The Take-Away: Powerful. This book charts the development of a friendship, the relationship of a girl and her mother, and what happens when words aren't enough to explain.

I love how Ms Stewart ended the book. It fits the theme, the ultimate goal that the protagonist is supposed to learn about herself, and the relationships she has developed on the way. Ms Stewart takes a look at the choices that are made in a lifetime and uses several characters to illustrate how history molds the person who develops.

The entire story is told through Cameron, in first person, but the words and actions of other characters round out her experience.

Recommendation: Read it and share it with your best girlfriend.
