Friends Like Us may be marketed as your typical chick-lit novel, but it is so much more than that. Fox realistically portrays the friendship between two young twenty-something: Willa, a writer struggling to get by writing advertising copy for tea and mascara, and Jane, a poet who finds inspiration while cleaning houses. Willa, the novel’s narrator, believes that their friendship can withstand anything until Ben, Willa’s nerdy best friend from high school and Jane’s new boyfriend, gets in the middle. The story is both bittersweet and funny, and will keep readers guessing until the very end.
