A Cool New Book About Friendship

Constant use will not wear ragged the fabric of friendship.—Dorothy Parker, humorist, 1893-1967

I’ve had moments of not speaking to people, but that's the way it goes. Friendships—if they’re true friendships—are resilient, and you bounce back, and having a falling-out just adds another layer to them.—Madonna

Ever wonder what advice Meg Ryan, Oprah Winfrey, or Christina Aguillera would give a 10-14 year old girl if they had the chance? In The Girls’ Book of Friendship: Cool Quotes, True Stories, Secrets and More, edited by Catherine Dee, young readers will learn for themselves just what their favorite celebrities and other successful women have to say about one of the most important things in their lives—friendship. Written as a companion to the popular Girls’ Book of Wisdom, this collection features real-life stories, cool quotes, and inspiring poems from dyanamic girls and women of the past and present and from all walks of life—including writers, mothers, actors, athletes, politicians, and students. Find out what they have to say about making and maintaining friendships, trust and secrets, boyfriends and more!

The Girls’ Book of Friendship aims to help girls:

* Evaluate whether someone would make a good friend
* Become the kind of friend everyone needs
* Know when they can truly trust someone
* Make new friends in unexpected places
* Find an e-pal
* Become an attentive listener
* Maintain friendships in and outside of the popular crowd
* Stay close with friends when they’re dating someone
* Plan adventures that stay with them forever

Included in this fun guide are friendly facts, pal projects, poems, and more than 100 cool quotes from famous women and girls such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Louisa May Alcott, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Gloria Steinem, Mandy Moore, and Michelle Kwan.

Perfect for holiday gifts and just the right size for sticking in a backpack, The Girls’ Book of Friendship is sure to enlighten and entertain girls everywhere.
