    Nice but not realistic. The idea of this book is nice, especially for tweens, but the advice is like the kids themselves don’t have any opinion. And idea for something to say to someone mean is like, “Please stop, you’re hurting my feelings.”. Bullies obviously know that, because that’s the whole point of what they’re doing. Kids nowadays won’t say this stuff anyways because they’re smart enough to know that what I said is true, except they figure that out by themselves. I would recommend parenta Nice but not realistic.

I would recommend this book a smart girls to friendship troubles to any kids that have some trouble with their friends. If you have some troubles with getting your friends to play with you after a huge fight, you might want to study this book. If you had that kind of problem you are just like me. Once in third grade I had a fight with my best friends in my class. After I had that fight I thought that my friends would forget about the whole fight and still be my friends. When I got to school the I would recommend this book a smart girls to friendship troubles to any kids that have some trouble with their friends. If you have some troubles with getting your friends to play with you after a huge fight, you might want to study this book. If you had that kind of problem you are just like me. Once in third grade I had a fight with my best friends in my class. After I had that fight I thought that my friends would forget about the whole fight and still be my friends. When I got to school the next day, I noticed that when I looked at the they turned their backs on me. Suddenly I knew that they did not want to be my friends any more. That is how I got this book. When I got the book I thought that this book would not help at all, but when I read the book I had suddenly knew what to do. My opinion of this book is that it is a very helpful story. It is supposed to help you with your friends and the troubles you have with them. In this book there are quizes that you can answer. They are just a bunch of questions that you can answer, yes or no. The questions ask you what kinds of problems you have with your friends. For example they will ask you if they bullie you and then you can circle yes or no. It is not only a book that gives you information about friendships it is also a work book. That is what I like about this book the most. I think that this work book is unique because you can write down what your friendship troubles are. It is also unique because you can answer questions on your topic of troubles. If I were to compare this book, I would choose a book that is from the same series. I chose a book that was written by the same author. The book is named A Smart Girls Guide To Sticky Situations. If it were my choice to choose witch one was the best, I would compliment that the book a smart guide to friendship troubles is a better book. I would say that because I think that this book has better information. When I say better information,I mean this book owns more common problem information and it is more descriptive.If I were to recommend the ages for this book I would say that ages 8 and up would be the best age. I would espesially recommend this book to kids that are in third grade because that grade is the grade that I started getting into fights with my friends. So that might be the year that might be the year that you start getting into fights with your friends, unless you have already had fights with your friends. the name of the author for this book is PATTI KELLY CRISSWELL. She lives near Kalamazoo mi.She has been working and speeking with girls for almost 20 years.

    Wanted to read this before passing it along to my niece. Really quick read on common issues tweens/teens/young adults face when it comes to friendship. I think this book does a great job offering up solutions for tackling common problems and answering questions in real time. Also does a great job highlighting the importance of standing up for yourself and being cofident and comfortable in your own skin.

Topics such as bullying, jealously and being a good friend are unpacked so that readers can better understand the dynamics of good relationship. A smart girl's guide to friendship troubles challenges readers to reflect on their own behaviour, the behaviour of others and potential scenarios to help hone their emotional maturity and be better prepared to respond appropriately to conflict. In my youth, though it sometimes felt like homework, I enjoyed the quizzes and interactive components. I like that characters are not painted uni-dimensionally, there is a lot of racial diversity in the character depictions and the author recognizes that everybody, including readers, have flaws. Recognizing that this book was written in 2003, there are some LGBTQI+ blind spots.

    Basic, practical advice. I haven't tried it on a real middle-school girl, but I will soon. If the whole series is as good as this one, I have just discovered gold. Basic, practical advice.

    There is good common sense advice in this book, but you will want to read through it as a parent because there are some areas that I, personally, would not advise my nieces to follow.

    Pretty good book. Of course for kids, but honestly great things to remember as an adult. Plenty of tips and facts. Nice to reread and remind yourself. Just good to see it now and then.

Have you ever need someone to guide you to make the right decisions then end up doing it with pride? This book helps teaches the concept of never to give up on a friend! I can make a text to world connection with their friends constantly fighting and arguing that most of the time they spend together they are fighting or mad at another. Like the examples in the book shows, they don't realize that friends are friends but it depends if you make it end. I would rate this book a 3.5 because there was no story just teaching you how to deal with things that might come across a friendship. I do like it because it gives good advice and answers a lot of the questions you would have.

    Excellent resource! My daughter founds this book at Barnes & Noble and asked me to buy it, and at $12 I figured why not -- it might help. And it did. Excellent points, great little quizzes, and wonderful scenario roll play. Our daughter immediately used some of the strategies with an on-again, off-again friend at school that had been causing her to dislike school. Then my third grade son started reading the book.

As they age we'll be exploring other titles in this series by American Girl Doll. Well done!

    This book shows what to do if you are having problems with your friends and if your friend is part of the "IN crowd" and leaving YOU left behind. When my best friend and I were fighting my Mum bought me this book and told me to use it to go through the tough time. It really does work and after that I got my BFF back (we arent friends anymore because things just werent working out.) This book really works!

    As a socially awkward, slightly weird preteen girl, I turned to this book for advice far more than I'm proud of. There are some things you just can't ask your friends or your mom, and what better place to turn to in that time of need than to a Smart Girl's Guide? I wish I still had my copy. I'm not one for self-help, but this actually proved useful in my life. Don't tell Rachel. Recommended!

    I read this book years ago, and even though I,personally, wish I hadn't wasted the time, it is a book that some kids should read. It certainly has a few tips that could and should be used to avoid drama that every girl inevitably encounters during childhood. However,I believe the kids that would enjoy these books most are those who enjoyed the original Americal Girl series, which I never did.

    Some great advice, but honestly, it seemed a bit mature. Not so much the tone of the book, more the advice itself. I can imagine that many grownups would benefit from reading this book, yet would still have trouble implementing the suggestions. Never the less, its decent basic advice, with a fairly main stream slant on popularity.

    An excellent book to read and discuss with your preteen daughter, or on your own just to know what to say to her when issues come up. It teaches them how to choose, keep, and be a good friend, and what to do when friendships fall apart. It's been extremely helpful for us.

    This is a good book for school libraries as well as a good book to give to a girl who is struggling with friendship issues. It's practical and easy to read and follow. There's not a lot of text, some quizzes, and cute drawings, so even girls who are not strong readers will be able to benefit.

It also tells you how to deal with girls who aren't so nice if you can't just stay away from them.
