The peppy, rainbow-colored cover art suits this book perfectly: it accurately reflects the author's amusing, lighthearted approach.

Stories about friendship have always interested me, so this book is right up my alley. The friendship-related research that the author cites was a bit dry at times, but I loved the descriptions of her actual meet ups and outings with potential new friends.

I didn't agree with some of what the author said, but I thought that many of her ideas for meeting new people were fun and creative.

It's a bit on the long side, but fairly enjoyable. It is hard to make friends as an adult -- I liked reading about all her schemes and strategies to make new friends.

A pretty interesting memoir about what it takes to form new adult friendships. I feel you, girl. It's tough when people have their own lives and families or move away and you can't just sit down with all your girlfriends and hang out.

No wonder it took her so long to find a bff - she is so picky, sometimes mean. I got really tired of feeling like I was inside of her mind, listening to her every thought and stopped reading the book. I have a feeling that she writes how she speaks. Terrible book.
