Good books which feature strong friendships between male and female characters

A list devoted to books that prove Harry Burns wrong: men and women CAN be friends, and they will help one another and fight for one another. The friendship may be a main plot or a subplot, but it should be important. Books in which the "friendship" is really a half-baked romance, unrequited love, or unresolved sexual tension do not belong here.
