Best Friends, Right? by Amy WInehouse
In Best Friends, Right?, Amy reveals her and her best friend's true colors by expressing how much they supposedly hate each other while still being best friends. She says "i can't wait to get rid of you, and surprisingly you hate me too." This really relates to how Junior and Rowdy feel about each other after Junior decides to leave the rez. And some part of this relates to the book's sad excuse for an ending.
