Friendship For Grown-Ups: What I Missed & Learned Along The Way, by Lisa Whelchel
Lisa Whelchel, wrote this book about how, as adults, we still have to deal with the ups and downs of having to make "true" friends.
This book is basically her journey and what she had to go through and come to terms with when trying to make and keep friends in her adult life. You read about how she came off to some people as though she was 100% perfect, even though she had a ton of major flaws that she let rule her life. You also read about how she opened up to others to the point of crying so much that they could no longer be around her. Along the way she writes about how she had to rely on God tremendously in order to get over the emotional friendship break-ups that she had to go through. She talks about the people who mean the most to her and why and also about the people who really weren't there for her too.
Even though she wrote the book based on her personal life, it is my belief that it was intended to help the reader in finding "true" friends in their own life. I do recommend this book to be read by others. I'm not sure that everyone will benefit from it, but it still makes a good read.
Disclosure: I received this book in return for a honest review from Booksneeze.
