Six great YA novels about female friendship

At the BN Teen Blog Natasha Ochshorn tagged six great YA books about female friendship, including:
Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging, by Louise Rennison

While this book is ostensibly about a boy, about teenager Georgia Nicolson’s quest to make sexy Robbie fall in love with her, its true focus is on Georgia and her friends as they observe boykind and try to figure out what the hell is going on over there. Robbie may make occasional appearances, along with Dave the Laugh and a precocious young makeout coach, but what makes the book so riotously funny and wonderful is Georgia and her friends.
Read about another entry on the list.
