Although I'm Ms. Thistlebottom, as opposed to Theodore's "Miss
Thistlebottom," because I'm a self-proclaimed editing authority who
doesn't always agree with T.B., this time he's right. "Among" is
USUALLY called for when more than two things are involved. But when
each of those things is considered individually, "between" is correct.
Even Strunk and White say so. Beth
