Where would Jennifer Aniston be without Courtney Cox? What would Madonna do without Gwyneth Paltrow? And for a while there, it seemed like Paris Hilton couldn’t survive without former-BFF Nicole Ritchie by her side.

Life is just more fun with friends. And who doesn’t want a sidekick in case there’s ever a need to fight crime or solve a mystery? Every girl needs at least one wonderful pal, and when you harness the power of friendship, life’s possibilities can be limitless.

It might sound like kid’s stuff, but the support of a girlfriend can last a lifetime. Long after the boys have come and gone, a true-blue girlfriend will still be by your side.


But like it or not, friendships take work, plain and simple. And that’s where 30 Days to Finding and Keeping Sassy Sidekicks and BFFs comes in – it’s a field guide to friendship that will help you learn the basics of meeting new friends and keeping the old.


What We Thought
We at Kidzworld LOVED this book! The first thing we noticed (and loved) was its bright-pink, eye-catching cover. The next thing we fell in love with was the fact that it’s a real, actual BOOK – not an e-mail, not an IM, not a text message – a REAL book you can actually carry around with you, read and put notes, opinions and feelings in. Nobody can have illegal access to it and it can be kept right under your bed if you want to keep it there.


Basically, this is a little book about friendship that you create yourself (with help from the author). It’s both informative and can double-up as a diary where you can write your thoughts and feelings – away from any prying eyes!


There are lots of fun ideas in this book. You can give any or all of the friendship suggestions and advice a try, or read one page a day and follow the guidelines set out by the author.


The book is also broken down into sections that make sense. Each section covers a different topic related to friendships, relationships and growing up, including the hard part about being a young girl about to enter puberty and, for those who have just started puberty, what the heck is going on! And each section gives you a fun activity to do when you finish reading it (one per day).


Finally, we loved that this book is based on friendship – how to be a friend AND how to find a friend, and what things like being a best friend really mean.
