My Review Of "Friendship For Grown-ups" by Lisa Whelchel; book giveaway

This book was provided free to me by BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review of the book.  To win this copy, please leave a comment and your email address following this review in the comments section.

I had a very hard time getting interested in this book. This is the only writing of Lisa’s I’ve ever read and I guess I just don’t care for her type of writing. I did watch her show, “Facts Of Life”, many years ago and really enjoyed that. Over the years I’ve heard Lisa speak out regarding her Christian faith and I admire her for this.

The book, as far as I could tell, is Lisa’s journey through her growing up and making and keeping friends. I had a hard time relating because I had “normal” growing up years. I guess being an actress, in the public eye, would definitely make a difference in how you handle relationships. Lisa relates that she pretended to be 100% when asked how she was, just to hide her real feelings. I did like how she tells of relying on God to get her through her friendship break ups.

Even though I’m giving the book 2 stars, I would ask you not to go by my review alone. Please read other reviews of this book at  This just wasn’t my type of book. It may appeal to others in a more positive way.
