A wonderful book,exactly what girls should know and understand. Your friends should not take you for granted, people should not be fool you. A self-help guide for all girls. Setting boundaries and be firm with communication is what is required. Girls tend to shy off, are scared of losing friendships and so don't speak.All these unsaid and unspoken words and hurts depress them, frustrate them and leave them with no respect. A really inspiring book which talks about, looks,pride, behavior, actions and interactions. A must read for all the ladies out there.
