Girlfriends are the Best Friends of All edited by Patricia Wayant
They are the first ones to tell you when you've done a good job. They can sense when you're having a bad day. They know what makes you laugh and cry. They would do anything in the world for you, and they know you'd do the same for them. They're your girlfriends!
is a celebration of the wonderful friendships women share. Filled with real-life reflections on what it means to have and to be a friend, this book captures the fun, memories, and unforgettable times girlfriends have together. It confirms what women have always known—that the unique connection they have with their girlfriends is more like the bond between sisters.
Every woman needs at least one close girlfriend she can count on. This book is for that special friend—to let her know how much you appreciate all that she does for you. It says everything you've always wanted to say about all the millions of reasons why girlfriends are the best friends of all!
Girlfriends are the Best Friends of All is a syrupy-sweet positive read which will likely appeal only to women—and only to some women at that. It is a collection of friend connections by various authors. A little bit went a long way for me, but I did manage to finish the book. It read like a hundred different ways to say the same thing with its repetitive theme. It’s not a horrible book, but I would have appreciated a little contrast as a reader. Every page was about the value of having a good friend; no page presented the other side—the value of being a good friend, not only to the other person but also the value to one’s inner self. After many pages of this one-sided view, the writers began to seem self-centered, not willing to delve into the ways they needed to be a good friend to others. I was not impressed with this book, and therefore will not recommend it.
