Discovery Girls Fab Girl's Guide to Friendship Hardship Review

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to do a review of Discovery Girl's Magazine (click HERE to read it), and now I'm doing a review of one of their for Discovery Girl's books.  The Fab Girls Guide to Friendship Hardship is geared towards middle-school girls and it deals with many of the difficult problems young girls deal with in regards to friendship.

The book is narrated by twins Carmen and Dallas Fabrulezziano who tackle issues such as frenemies, the price of popularity, speaking up about bullies, how to be a good friend, and when to end a destructive friendship.  The advice offered by the twins is written in a way that it's accessible to girl's today; it uses their language at the same time it continues to be solid advice.  For example, in the section "Friendship Advice from Older Girls" it says, "You should have more than one close friend at school, or you're going to be very lonely if that friendship ever ends."

The book is charming, witty, and it has tons of quizzes, which I used to always love when I was growing up.  I think that it would be a great book for any young girl struggling with friendships, and let's face it that's most of them (and probably their moms too).  I read a little bit each day to a group of students and they loved it.  It really set the stage for some open dialogue.

There are four books in the Discovery Girls series: Friendship Hardship, Sticky Situations, Getting Your Questions Answered, and Getting Through Tough Times.  

You can purchase any of the books at

And stay tuned because I have an awesome Discovery Girl giveaway coming up this week!

I was provided with a free copy of Friendship Hardship so that I might provide you with an honest review.  I received no monetary compensation for this post.
