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.
