A review by gillyreads
Best Friends, by Shannon Hale


A follow up to Shannon Hale's excellent Real Friends, Best Friends explores her transition towards teenage years.
I found her depiction to her developing anxiety very relevant and I hope will give readers a way to articulate their own feelings or understand their friends. She touches on the problems with the way society taught her to understand herself in relation to boys, her desires to be a writer and the ongoing struggles navigating changing and confusing friendships.
