Nat & Leah

Muni's picture

While reading NW, I found the friendship between Natalie/Keisha and Leah very intriguing. They started out doing everything together, not because of common interests but because of the "dramatic event." Gradually, they grow apart, but throughout the course of the novel it appears as if they're rekindling their friendship. I also found myself curious about how Leah sees their relationship versus how Natalie/Keisha sees it. Both of them seem insecure about being around the other, but for different reasons. I'd like to explore the course of their friendship and the direction it's headed in at the end of the book.
