Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite Dannah Gresh and Suzy Weibel have written A Girl's Guide to Best Friends and Mean Girls which is a primer for mid-grade girls unsure of how to react in tough friendship circumstances. Girls of this age frequently are stymied when it comes to immediate reactions when best friends don't live up to their expectations. The authors explain how, by using the stories in the Bible, they will have ready answers and ready responses to tricky interpersonal situations. They point out passages in the Scriptures where Jesus actually demonstrated how to approach friendship issues and how adhering to your own belief system can actually bring you closer to your friends. There are several sections which should appeal to girls with various friendship problems. One involves just how much to include the parents and another suggests just how friends should be chosen. Jealousy of others and dealing with mean girls is addressed as is the issue of trying to help a friend while receiving tough feedback yourself. Although the book was written to be a quick guide to preteen girls, I felt at times the advice was a bit brief. I also wondered how many young girls would read the Bible passages and be capable of extrapolating them to the current-day situation. The exercises in the book are both charming and helpful to girls with problems which appear monumental. Although having your best friend show up in a sweater exactly like the one you showed her the day before is not an earth-shattering event to most adults, to the preteen girl, it is one deserving of an immediate emotional resolution. This book can help to accomplish that.
Sups long title for one but has some sups good messages in the text it shows that sometimes life can be difficult but God helps us through all of that with helpful words in the bible
