#Bookadayuk Day 20: Favorite Literary Friendship

The Golem and the Djinni - Helene Wecker

In lesser hands, this book would have been just another paranormal romance. Wecker doesn't take the easy road, however, and creates a beautifully complicated platonic love between two characters with their own independent lives and stories. That there is a possibility for more than friendship in the very end is maybe suggested, but throughout the book it is their friendship, fraught as it is with anger and misunderstanding, that makes the story so wonderful.
