Title: She Matters: A Life in Friendships

Author: Susanna Sonnenberg

KDL Description:


Presents an illuminating assessment of the women who have profoundly shaped the author’s life, in a candid series of portraits that explores the powerful bonds and complex nuances that mark female friendships.

Amazon Description:

Now, Sonnenberg, with her unflinching eye and uncanny wisdom, has written a compulsively readable book about female friendship. The best friend who broke up with you. The older girl at school you worshipped. The beloved college friend who changed. The friend you slept with. The friend who betrayed you. The friend you betrayed. Companions in travel, in discovery, in motherhood, in grief; the mentor, the model, the rescuer, the guide, the little sister. These have been the women in Susanna Sonnenberg’s life, friends tender, dominant, and crucial after her reckless mother gave her early lessons in womanhood.
