I'd heard a lot of wonderful things about this novel and wish it hadn't taken me so long to pick it up. The story-line follows two girls from childhood to adulthood and the complex psychological relationship they had. It also skims the surface on foreign aid in Africa, an interesting thread in the narrative that I enjoyed having been an international relations major.
