|"Best friends forever," or "BFF," a phrase said often by many a young girl, may prove, as she grows into a woman and responsibilities
leave less time for friends, easier said than done. Gleaning from their own experiences with friends, families, and responsibilities, and
supported by hundreds of interviews, Degges-White and Borzumato-Gainey attempt to make sense of female relationships, from why
we need them to how to make them.
Highlighting the murky differences between female and male friendships, this work is clearly written by women for women. The book
tracks and analyzes female friendships from early childhood to late life, tackling milestones like coupling, marriage, and childbirth.
Parallel features of female friendships arise at every age, from the obvious (forming friendships based on common interest) to more
crucial elements of trust, honesty, and reciprocity.
Relatable tales and easy-to-implement recommendations will equip female readers with the confidence to form new, lasting friendships
and the language with which to discuss their current ones. In the end, making friends for women of any age, at any stage in life, will
seem less daunting and more inviting than ever.
