Katrina S. Forest's Top Ten Best Friends in Books: Tour Stop for My Best Friend Runs Venus

My Best Friend Runs Venus

This is my stop during the blog tour for My Best Friend Runs Venus by Katrina S. Forest. This blog tour is organized by Lola's Blog Tours. The blog tour runs from 3 till 16 June. See the tour schedule here.

For my stop I'll be sharing a top ten list from the author!

Katrina's Top 10 Favorite Best Friends in Books
This is a tricky one! My tastes are pretty varied, so this list will probably end up looking like a hodgepodge of genres and age levels. There's a couple graphic novels that spring to mind, too, when I think of powerful friendships in fiction. I think my favorites actually aren't the ones where the characters get along great and everything is wonderful between them. I prefer friendships in which two characters struggle--where one or both of them genuinely messes up big time, and the other might struggle to offer forgiveness.
So, with that in mind, here's my list. In no particular order, of course: 
1. Kate Harker and August Flynn from This Savage Song/Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab 
2. Momoko Ryugasaki and Ichigo "Ichiko" Shirayuri from Kamikaze Girls by Novala Takemoto.
3. Miaka Yuki and Yui Hongo from Fushigi Yuugi by Yuu Watase
4. Milo and Tock from the Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
5. Leo Pellissier and George Dumas from The Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter
6. Prince Aleksandar and Deryn Sharp from the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld
7. Harry Potter and Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
8. Elijah Baley and R. Daneel Olivaw from the Robot series by Issac Asimov
9. Cece and Laura from El Deafo by Cece Bell
10. Marie and Lena from I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This by Jacqueline Woodson

Wow, great list, Katrina! And now for a look at Katrina's new book (and a giveaway).

My Best Friend Runs VenusMy Best Friend Runs Venus
By Katrina S. Forest
Genre: Science Fiction
Age category: Middle Grade
Release Date: June 1, 2019

At 12.9 years old, number-obsessed Kade Walker has never heard of death. Literally. But neither has anyone else he knows. Kade is one of hundreds of kids "living" across the solar system through robotic avatars while their real bodies sleep in pods on Earth. Unfortunately, robot bodies can be hacked.

One day during an (innocent!) experiment, Kade unwittingly breaks a major security wall and releases an infamous hacker. The madwoman targets all the royal avatars, including Kade’s best friend, Princess Tamika of Venus.

If Kade and Tamika don’t want to become the hacker’s puppets, they’ve got to stop her fast--even if it means waking up on Earth to fight with bodies they never realized could be hurt.
