The Friendship

Paperback
It was in the village school playground that Kit first laid eyes on Ara and determined that they were to become best friends. Kit was 10, Ara two years older. If Kit was a scrawny little girl, quick and dynamic, Ara was large, slow, and deliberate. The story of their friendship is told through the eyes of Kit, and it shows with astonishing precision just how a person, especially someone growing up, is a battleground on which obsessive claims of the mind, addictions, and instincts strive for domination.
