Book Review: Friendship for Grown-Ups
I was excited to be able to read this book as I've always struggled with finding friends. I hoped that it would help me learn how to make friends. It didn't give me any step by step guides to how to make a friend, however. Lisa shares her story of growing up as a child star and how she put up walls around the "real" Lisa to protect herself from being hurt. This book made me look at my own life to find how I have gotten to where I am now and to question whether I was acting too needy like Lisa was in some of her friendships. I found the book to be easy to read and very down to earth and applicable to my life. I would recommend this book to people, especially women, who struggle with friendships or desire to be true friends.
I was provided a copy of this book by Thomas Nelson through their Booksneeze program to review.
