Publisher's Summary

When Cameron was 15, Sonia was her best friend, no one could come between them. Now Cameron is a 29-year-old research assistant with no meaningful ties to anyone except her aging boss, noted historian Oliver Doucet.

When an unexpected letter arrives from Sonia 10 years after the incident that ended their friendship, Cameron doesn't reply, despite Oliver's urging. But then he passes away, and Cameron discovers that he has left her with one final task: to track down Sonia and hand-deliver a mysterious package to her. Now without a job, a home, and a purpose, Cameron decides to honor his request, setting off on the road to find this stranger who was once her inseparable other half.

The Myth of You and Me, the story of Cameron and Sonia's friendship, as intense as any love affair, and its dramatic demise, captures the universal sense of loss and nostalgia that often lingers after the end of an important relationship. Searingly honest, beautiful, and full of fragile urgency, The Myth of You and Me is a celebration and portrait of a friendship that will appeal to anyone who still feels the absence of that first true friend.

    "clear, compelling, emotionally engaging"

    I loved this book. I literally called in sick to a conference so that I could finish it! There's no "chick lit" schmaltz here or superficial gloss -- just great story-telling through time, vivid characters, and a slow build-up to a spare, gorgeous ending. I was so compelled by Stewart's language and prose. I hope that, like me, you'll be drawn in by this lovely book.

    "A love story about straight girlfriends"

    It's a really good contemporary story. The pain of losing one's childhood friends for whatever reason is very real. I played it while cleaning a room and the time went by quickly. I reccommend it.
