In this painfully honest paperback, women confess that, even though they love their best same gender friends, sometimes those same dear friends make them want to tear their hair out. In priceless, often laugh-out-loud quips, women speak candidly about the grating behavior of their pals, revealing the good, the bad, and the funny of female relationships.
