Book Description

An inspiring and humorous celebration of the special bond of friendship She championed you through your years wearing braces and you calmed her nerves before her walk down the aisle. She advised you on what to wear to land your perfect job and you taught her how to get her newborn to sleep during a midnight phone call. Together you’ve dug through your backyard looking for pirate’s treasure and dug through bargain bins during shopping outings; you’ve shared your secrets, doubts and dreams; and you look forward to conquering hot flashes together. You may have met her in kindergarten or at work, in a playgroup or on the Internet—but if she’s cheered you up, cheered you on, or lifted your spirit, Chicken Soup for the Girlfriend’s Soul is the perfect tribute to that special friend. Whether she’s your lunch companion, your sounding board, your confidant, or all of the above, she anchors you during life’s storms and helps you revel in life’s joys. With tales of finding friends in unexpected places, of strength during life’s toughest challenges, and of forging lifelong bonds and memories, this book will tug at your heart and hers as you celebrate the unique spirit of female friendship.

My Review

 Don't you just love this wonderful series of books - the Chicken Soup for the Soul series? I find them to be wonderful sources of uplifting stories that provide comfort and encouragement. I find that they also are an excellent gift for certain situations such as the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Grieving and Recovering for friends who have just lost someone.   The Chicken Soup for the Girlfriend's Soul is a wonderful addition to this series. As mentioned in the title , the book celebrates those friends who cheer us up, cheer us on and make our life complete.

I have girlfriends that I've known my entire life and some I've known less than a year. The stories in this book celebrate all of these types of friendships. It is inspiring, funny and thoughtful. A great book to remind us all how important our friendships with other women are.
