about this item
The co-author of THE LAST LECTURE tells the story of 11 girlhood friends from Ames, Iowa, and how their lives alternately diverged and intertwined as they grew into adulthood. Remarkably, over the years, all the friends held onto their individual collections of photographs, letters, and mementos, documenting their wonderful friendship. While depicting this extraordinary circle of women, Zaslow also examines how the deep and unique bonds of female friendship can transform a group of individuals into a collective entity.
An inspiring story of 11 girls from Ames, Iowa, and the 10 women they became and the mysterious death of their 11th member is a moving demonstration of how female friendships can shape every aspect of women's lives. Reprint. A #1 best-selling book.
