Summary 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.
