"Really helpful book in explaining the basics to being A good
friend and making some. Not all kids have this skill naturally, so
it's great that this book is a small and simple enough read. It is
interesting, uses hypothetical scenarios that are age appropriate
for 6th grade- probably 8th and holds the readers interest. Honest
and genuine, makes sense. Works best if reader understands that all
of us have strengths and weaknesses and we all work to grow
stronger, build better character within ourself." - Jes K,
"This book is a great resource for adults working with young people who could use some assistance in developing healthy relationships. It includes a lot of good common sense concepts and is written in an easy to read style. I wouldn't expect a lot of teens to read it themselves (although some might) but if you can deliver the content to them via small group discussion or one on one counseling it can have a great impact." - John Michael Hicks, Amazon
"What a good book for preteens-teens. This was such a great find. My son really enjoyed it as I did hearing how he was processing it." - Nadine Castas, Amazon
