520 Good friends and healthy friendships are crucial to a
woman's well-being at every stage of her life. What
happens when a friendship turns toxic? When a friend
becomes hurtful or mistreats another? When a friend
abandons another friend in a time of need? Here, the
authors explore such toxic friendships and how women
navigate the ups and downs, as well as how broken
friendships can be mended, and bad friendships ended.
Explaining and illustrating the various rules of
friendship at various stages of life, the authors reveal
what it takes to be a good friend, how to identify bad
friends, and how to move forward when friendships sour.
