These writers, actors, singers, professionals in different

on their own experiences. If you're having trouble with
a friend, a quote about fights could help you make up. You
might read a quote about best friends that gives you a new
appreciation for your own; or one about celebrating friends

This book puts it all at your fingertips so you can find
the right suggestions about friendship any time you need
True Stories. These tales are warm and wonderful,
intriuging and eye-opening . You'll eavesdrop on what it
was like when someone lost her best friend's trust, or realized
a new friend could be a best friend, or reconnected with
someone who moved away. These life "snapshots" capture incidents
that affected the writers' feelings about friendship or
their beliefs in general.
Poems. These assorted short works pay tribute to
being your own best friend, old and new friends, friends
who are always there, and more.
Pal Projects. Here's where you'll find creative
ways to let friends know how much you care or to document
Quick Lists. These at-a-glance lists cover such
topics as qualities people look for in friends, good movies
to watch together, and what to expect at sleepovers.
Friendly Facts. This section includes interesting
facts and figures on how people think about friendship.
While you'll find plenty of helpful facts and suggestions
in The Girls' Book of Friendship, keep in mind that
it's not supposed to be an all-inclusive "textbook" on how
to make and keep friends. This book is instead a celebration
of what friendship -- and especially female friendship --
is all about. I hope it will help you celebrate and enjoy
life with your friends -- now and for years to come!
