My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante | Conversation Starters
Elena Greco and Lila Cerullo live in the same neighborhood and go to the same school, but their paths in life quickly diverge after middle school when Lila drops out. However, they manage to hang on to their friendship.

It touches upon the themes of repression of women, male violence, normalization of violence, poverty and its consequences and the aftermath of World War II on the people as a whole.
